Today I'm designing a new belly dancing vest from scratch. The trick of sewing is to get flat fabrics to go over curves. So I've now drafted, sewn and taken apart two versions, trying for a more perfect fit. It seems like a lot of work now, but if I come up with a final product I love, I'll be able to use the pattern over and over again, and get pleasure from wearing the vests I make while I dance for years to come. So a little aggravation now will be worth it in the end.
