As part of a brief, I was asked to try from photos alone to remake one of my favourite pieces by a designer. In doing so I wanted to push myself in terms of my technical ability. I choose a Comme des Garçons knee length woollen coat which was look 12 from the AW09 Collection. This coat proved quite difficult to make as using woollen blankets as the designer had was too thick for any of my machines to sew. I also could find any photos online of what the bottom half of the back of the jacket looked like so again I had to improvise and design something that worked with the pattern of the front to fit in the back.
Once I had made the original jacket, the second part of the brief was to design a co-ordinating piece using the original pattern pieces as inspiration.
