Have You Tried?

Has anyone out there in the blogosphere tried to make this type of top?

Junya Watanabe Check Twist Top

Now this is the kind of pattern I want to see offered by the Big Four. Wildly shaped pattern pieces that form a fairly basic T-shirt shape when sewn. So how can we get Junya Watanabe to create some patterns for Vogue?

Who do we have to call?

Hot, right?

There was an article about Isabel Toledo in a Threads magazine a few years ago that showed diagrams of how she made a similar top. I'll see if I can find it and send you the date. It showed how the top was cut to get that drape. very technicaly interesting

I made a top similar to that over the winter (no pattern used, just some intensive draping on the dress form).
