Indeed. Distilling something down to it's most basic is very rarely something that just happens. I think it makes those times when simplicity serendipitously occurs all the more precious. Looking forward to seeing that final cut & sew.

beautifully said. i remember the "simple" projects i made as a beginning knitter and the way i would approach those same projects now... simplicity takes on a different sense altogther. as you put it-- a refinement-- that is not without a lot of thought and effort into the subtle and/or invisible bits of the project. it's something i think about every time i see a wonderful effective and beautiful design, whether in a kitchen implement or a chair or a quilt... always a goal.

I know exactly where you're coming from- I'm so excited you've plunged in and taken the challenge- looks lovely so far.. can't wait to see how it turns out!

I love how you talk about simplicity, with the inherent understanding that simple isn't always easy. Not a starting point per se, but a goal to be reached. But drafting that dress sounds anything but! i'm sure the results will be gorgeous, will you post a picture of Pia wearing it?

I know exactly. This is something I always strive for in all my work. In architecture it is especially hard. Simple means nothing to hide imperfections. Simple, clean lines in building always means double the cost as well. And in the USA, it ALWAYS means a contractor scratching his head.
I can't wait to see the dress, it sounds simply beautiful.

i love the patience and exactness you are taking in this approach. i am truly working on enjoying the process of making right now. it is hard with the holidays and the desire to mass-produce things but to truly refine to the point of simplicity is wonderful. great work.
