For a number of decades Vogue Patterns has published patterns by various internationally known designers. This outlet has been my only way of getting to live with designer clothes, as the pattern pieces and construction techniques vary widely from standard sewing patterns and traditional higher-end clothing. This is especially the case for Mr. Issey Miyake.
The pattern i used to make this jacket is the top left one on this page (i did make alterations to the pattern). The web author has collected all published Issey Miyake for Vogue Patterns and posted them on this site - i suggest you all take a look. The clothes are all fabulous and so original and unique, to have the opportunity to make them up yourself is - you just get to know the clothes in a completely different way.
I'm running around 'like a chicken without it's head' today, so this will be a short post. Mr. E has vacation time coming up, and we're going to take full advantage of it! So tomorrow's post will likely be the last one for a week, but i should have some fun things for you to see when i return to the blogosphere...
The tank is grey. I don't know why it turned blue in the third picture - i tried to fix it. It didn't really work.
