Spring 2020 // Recreation of Sacai shirt and building Japanese construction pant By laying the garment flat on the cutting table, I was able to transfer all seams of the shirt from Sacai and gain a pattern to work from. After making some observations, I built pattern alternatives with an eye to improving construction or minimizing manufacturing costs. I ended up with a replication that includes my changes. To go with the shirt is a pair of Japanese construction pants called Nikka-zubon. Because the Sacai shirt is purely an example of style, I wanted to create something that is totally about functionality and usefulness. They make a funny combination but I learned a lot from the study. Part two takes these garments to the next level with material comparison and selection.
