So I'm at college specialising in Fashion on my Foundation, and we did a project called deconstruct-reconstruct. We bought "unsellable" items donated from a charity shop (up to 3 items) and had to change them into something completely new. We were also told to try and use as much of the already existing parts (seams, fastenings etc.) as possible without doing something really minimal.
Being my usual self I decided to avoid all teachers help and see how far I could push myself on my own (a slightly delusional idea possibly...).
Okay boring bits over, basically I bought a womens blazer (size 14) and a mens shirt. Currently I'm obsessed with menswear as womenswear, and a little bit of androgyny. So here's what I made:
Sorry there's no pic of the back - the photo was taken by photography students and I had no real chance to take my own pics.
Before pics (scuse silly not awake faces):
Basically I made a pair of trousers from the blazer (no pattern, the panels are made from the lining, and that's the original lapels and button), I resized the shirt (shortened it and brought it in... a lot), and took off the sleeves. and added pin tucks. The wasitcoat is made out of the lining of the blazer and some of the leftover shirt material. I also made a tie and a cuff from some of the other pieces left over from the shirt and blazer.
Lemme know what you think
