Description

I made this garment as part of a portfolio and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. The pattern is from Hisako Sato’s “Drape Drape 2” pattern book. Like his other work, this pattern is beautifully designed. He really approaches fabric and garment construction with an sculptural/architectural mind. The fabric is also hand dyed with turmeric, and it was originally white. I don’t think I have guts to wear this outside my room, but I’m happy with the result and the challenging nature of the project.

    Amazing! I’m obsessed with Drape Drape at the moment, and yours is the first version of this I’ve seen. It looks like the most complicated pattern in the book.

      Yes, those books are awesome, and there seems to be a community around them… like showing off versions of the same pattern. The pattern is kind of complicated, but also really doable… mostly box pleats. The most complicated part actually is transferring pattern from book to scrap paper to fabric. Give it a try! It would be great to see another version.
