my essential suitcase

Way back in college I stumbled across a radio program called Desert Island Discs.

As it turns out, that program has been on the air for many years and still exists!

Well here is the clothing version, taken straight from my sketchbook: My Essential Suitcase. The 10 essential patterns I would make for myself if I was stranded someplace with only a suitcase (or, in my case, my beloved backpack). I’ve also listed some of my fabric preferences in the notes below.

The details:
