Yohji Yamamoto Jacket by urbandon

Added Mar 4, 2011

For those tackling this Yohji piece here are some tips:

‘Back piece’ is the arms and back panel. The dart goes towards the neckline. Think of it like a shrug and sew the arms together.

The ‘front’ panel is like a collar that extends up and over. It is folded and attached.(the back is caught between the layers of the front.)

If you can visualize two tubes connected in a t-shape- one the arms and back, the other the front and collar.

Trace the pattern pieces from the A4 pdf and mock it up- this really helps.

    Isn’t this a lovely garment? I usually wear mine the other way around. I love the colour of yours.

      The fact it can be worn either way just adds to the brilliance of the design. Thanks for commenting.

    Great to see another one of these made up! And in colour as well, nice choice. I totally agree that ‘which piece goes where and how’ is the biggest challenge of this making this garment. At least you realised it was ment for sturdy knits, so you didn’t have to make a lining.
