Thanks so much to Rhonda Buss! She has been able to help Anne Marie out!
I agree that it would be fabulous if Vogue would re-issue these classic Miyake patterns from the 80s, but I don't think that will ever happen. For one thing, they would have to renegotiate the contract with those who are running the current Miyake design house and I think that it is just not feasible, more's the pity. It's really great when people can work out a sharing situation. Thanks again, Rhonda!
A sewing pal, Anne Marie of le mani d'oro, is in search of an out-of-print Issey Miyake pattern (from 1998) to sew a dress for a very special event.
She is happy to buy, or rent, this pattern (in an XS-S-M) for a reasonable price.
If you can help, please contact her through her blog post.
I was busy sewing this weekend, but have nothing to show you quite yet.
Have a great week!
