Well yes this is exactly what it looks like

It is a pile of crashed and rejected panels that for one reason or another fell victim for my inner critic that kept getting in my way when working on Soft Wire.

I never did get to the fun part with my contest entry mostly because I gravely underestimated how much time drafting a fitting pattern and working with limited amounts of fabric would take. You need both experience and a good plan to sew a project like mine. I admit I had none. I normally work with paper and with paper it is so much harder to undo or cover up a mistake. With fabric if you work with a forgiving fabric like I did well then you can make changes. Yes, I fell deep down into a seam ripping trap and time went swiftly by.

Now when I have all these lovely rejects and there is no deadline for the project, why not sew something on the contest theme architecture just to see what kind of wearable object I can sew from them. Let us set out on new journey exploring this new textile knowledge I gotten and put my pattern to use.
