I’m sure you have heard something like this: from your tip of nose to end of the finger tips measures about a yard, or the circumstance of your neck pretty much dictates the measurement of your waist measurement in half. So I was cleaning my closet out during the Memorial day weekend, and I was surprised to see I still had this self experimental anatomy project using a old pair of Gap jean during my first year of F.I.T.
In one of super early year of 90’s, I took a pair of over dyed Gap “Bell Bottom” Jean (Yes, Bell Bottom Jean!) and completely took it into parts and re made into a small jacket. A small jacket that fits me perfect. And this was one hell of fun project because I could totally discover that Human Anatomy worked a Magic. The rise just fits perfectly around my neck opening, the leg is just enough to cut into sleeves. The waist is waist, so it’s a perfect waist. Now I do not recall exactly where the band collar piece came from , But I do vaguely remember that the subtle curve of the collar was not my artistic approach, it was what it was. It came from certain part of jean it just fit perfect. Studding I did years after when I was designing Tommy Jeans. I was very much into studding then, I was studding even my check book cover. Certain satisfaction you get after studding to see how much you have done and so on… Anyway, Take a look at them!
The key point is actually one part of body measurement totally works or fits other part of the body. So fascinating…!
Here’s the How to!
