The way you move.

As a huge fan of 18th & 19th century British tailoring, I had forgotten how much I enjoy draping. For me, process-wise, it is the antitheses of the order which attracts me to tailoring. Taking large swathes of fabric and tucking, folding, pleating and wrapping it following the twists and turns of the body, rather judy, is so very relaxing. The excitement I feel as the drapes and folds start to take shape and slowly become something very much like wearable art. Learning how to work with the fabric instead of trying to bend it to ones will was a very difficult lesson for me. It reminds me a lot of clay work in that way. Not always successful but, as I get back into it, I relearn how not to be so controlling.

Rough work on a jacket which shall be lined with some ridiculously contrasting fabric. May even make it all reversible. Not certain yet. Will let you know. :D

Fabric found while roaming through Little India

More Little India fabric shopping, fabric on a judy awaiting inspiration.
