Hi girls,

Thought you might like this - the design website ShowStudio offers a free pattern from Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela. Quote:


At the vanguard of avant-garde designers, Martin Margiela is a master of reworking existing clothes, fabrics and objects to create new garments and accessories. Attributing this quest to transform as born from a wish to treat the preciseness of the structure of a particular garment as a design challenge, this downloadable unfinished pattern gives an opportunity to engage in this process of mutation and innovation. The simple shift dress pattern, without sleeves and with no hemming, is the basis to make a design of your own conception - by augmentation and addition. As if joining the actual designers at the key stage in the making of a garment, this is your raw material to shape into the new.

The pattern, that you'll have to finish yourself, is downlable as a pdf-file:

34 tiled sheets for A4/letter printers

4 sheets of A1 for large format printing only

(...and the results can be posted at the ShowStudio website)

Read it all at http://www.showstudio.com/projects/ddl_margiela/download.html

hm....if empire waists didn't make me look so....pregnant........ that would be a great project for me.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.
