I fell in love with this top when I saw it on Yamamotos website. It's part of his + noir line this upcoming season

It confuses me so much though! How would I go about making this? It looks like it has no seams or something! @__@ Help?

Well, I can't tell if it is knit or woven fabric, but one possible answer is that it is a tubular knit design, so there would be no seams.  Unfortunately I don't know that many people with a tubualar knitting machine for the heck of it, yeah.  Not a lot of help.

Another solution is that is really is pretty must just as easy as it looks.  You could cut the front and the back and just sew the sides together, you know?  It is not supposed to fit "well," at least as far as, say, a t-shirt of something with more seams would.  So I'd just cut the shape out as you see it here, same for the front and back, and just let it hang on your body.

I don't think it will be that difficult - as Chilan said, you just cut a front and a back and sew them together.  As in, the sleeves are to be cut w/ the front and back, so you don't have to worry about cutting them out properly or setting them.  Then once you finish w/ shoulder and side seams just hem whatever needs hemming or leave it if you want - if you use knit you should be able to just leave it and it won't fray much.  Also, don't forget to make it extra long. 

This is probably about the easiest shirt design possible, you have nothing to worry about other than not making it tight.

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

I have a yohji yamamoto pattern, and it's truly quite mind bending the more you look at it- he trys to have as little seams as possible

But a plain tshirt-ish shape with an extremely wide and high neck should work pretty close to. I think he may have cut it slightly off-grain to get that draped effect. It is lovely, isn't it?

Do you stitch? Do you bitch? Do you live in BrisVegas?? http://brisbanesnb.wordpress.com/

Hm. I'll get crafting once I can get my hands on more fabric, which might be a month or so away. Sad I discovered I only have 1/4 yd of black knit fabric when I thought I had at least 2 yds. ><

Yamamoto's stuff is so .. simple and clean. It's really nice stuff.
