What is the Peacock Patterns company all about?
Sewing is a passion, simple as that!
I intend Peacock Patterns to be a reflection of what I like, which are
niche things not mainstream items for the masses. I think people sew for self-expression and Peacock Patterns will give you
ideas to express yourself in a beautiful way. If you love vintage lines, unsual fabrics, details, celebrating unique features,
feathers and leathers watch for future inspiration at peacockpatterns.com

This is a uncut rectangular standard size Pashmina scarf.
It is from the pashmina goat. Simply drape around body and sew in invisible zipper for a great look.
This is how the Pashmina skirt cascade falls giving
an assymetrical hem and beautiful peak at both sides of the scarf. An elegant look!

It's Sew Time!!
is a creative way to turn a pashmina shawl into flirty skirt. Just insert an invisible zipper and sew in a waistband! Voila!
This shows how the cascade is formed. There is an invisible
zipper sewn at the center of the cascade. But you can't see it BECAUSE....shhhhh it's invisible.
