London, United K...






Drape Drape Volume 1- pattern number 1 combined with Marilyn Trousers.
A cheer experiment on cashmere/wool remnants from the RCA fashion department. It is such a pleasure to work with fabrics of such quality for free. The pleats look better when controlled with invisible hand-stitching in the inside. Easy pull on and off, side closure (see opening/pocket detail), belt with two buckles…
The Marilyn pattern is a really flattering one. So far I found it a good base to crack up with tailoring extravagance (on fabric remnants of course) and alternative closures. Two other instalments on the go
Adieu frontral zipped closures!

    These are very very very cool. Elegant but cool. Really flattering shape as well how the pleats and the slightly wider leg go together.

    Wow! These are amazing. I love the closure detail. I’m a guy and I would probably sport those. They are beautiful.

    one of my favourite creations on burdastyle!!!!!!

    by the way, do you speak japanese? if not, is it easy to understand the instructions from the drape to drape book? i´ve been wanting to buy that book or perhaps one of the Stylish Dress Books.. but I am afraid of not being able to understand the directions….thank you!
