Hi folks here's the next installment from Kate - Style Advice for Ruth
Processing all this info and trying it out in real life is going to take a while I am sure.
Meanwhile to go with the leggings/slim trousers I really fancied a different style of top because the ordinary tops would have felt a bit short with the slimmer cut of the leggings.
I didn't want a tunic that was long all the way round, and having just extra bits at the sides adds to the saddlebags, so I decided I wanted an offset angled hem. I experimented by placing a piece of tissue aginst myself and then used my existing top pattern with added roll neck and cuffs. It just seemed to be what worked with the fabric.
