piecing

piecing is usually a quilting term but i use it in my sewing as well.

i love the way you can bring a garment together by sewing pieces of fabric together. there is a certain puzzle to it…it seems always to have an innate function to fit together. (i personally think this is because of the way i sew and getting used to guaging the amount of fabric to use from quilting.)

but piecing has really been useful for me in my garments because of the asthetic feel…as some people really like patchwork in street fashion, i really like the look of different geometrical shapes sew together to form the garments structure. similarities.
