Featured: Stefano Pilati for YVES SAINT LAURENT
Explore volume and proportion by challenging conventional principles of tailoring for your Autumn wardrobe. Here is a great example by Stefano Pilati for YVES SAINT LAURENT, a ‘zoot’ trouser balancing a fitted cropped top. The pattern draft is a bit more advanced for those daring to try pleated trousers yet it is an easy project to construct.
You will need:
- Bottom-weight fashion fabric, 54” [137cm] wide **
