pannier plans
Thanks all for answering my query about pannier and sacques. That's what I thought... I was just hoping I was wrong. Still, perhaps a small pannier won't be too bad.

I've already tried pocket hoops and didn't like them. I also want to avoid the issues Kendra had with the whole hip-waist ratio thing (her saga) so I think I want to go with a full hooped pannier. Besides they would be cool for display.

I'm feeling far to lazy to scale up a pattern so I will use the new Simplicity pattern as my base. I'll have to size it down a bit but the shape looks right. I also have Hunnisett for directions and modifications if I need them. *hugs Hunnisett books*

So I just have to wait on a pattern sale...

I'm about to make a pair of pocket hoops for a customer - do you want "how to" pix? There is a trick to wearing them, which makes them work really well. (Hip/waist ratio doesn't come into it with mine - it's a pattern Jean gave at college and isn't quite the same as the one in the books. I can send you a copy if you let me know before the weekend - going to post on Friday.)

Yes and yes! :> I'd love how-to pics and the pattern, if it's not too much trouble. Thanks so much! :>

if you do use the simplicity one make sure you put a pleated frill above the bottom hoop to soften the line, this is the best advice hunnisett gives!

I like the Simplicity shape too. I've considered using it, but will probably go with a book. I just looked at the Corsets and Crinolines hoop today, and the Simplicity is very similar.

I still haven't decided if I should start over or try to salvage the one I started!
