Denim Refashioning and Project Runway
A Yahoo! Group I read has been taking about the shows, thats how I know about the recent developments. I'm sure that now there will be more people inspired by the shows great designs and I'll not be alone in my crazy pastime of cutting apart jeans! I just made a big pile to work on too! I'll have to get a pic on Flickr.
I just bought a pattern to try out yesterday. Its not everything that I've been thinking of, but I've been burning to make a jacket out of the recycled denim and procrastinating because of the pattern work involved in making my own design. So, I purchased Butterick B0458 by Connie Crawford. I will only have to make the sleeve a two piece to make it fit on the jeans. Its a nice little Fitted Jacket and I can try out her patternmaking style. I do have her book Patternmaking for Fashion Design to make my own patterns. Connie is very well respected by everyone that I have ever heard mention her name.
