vionnet exercises


The problem is there is simply not enough time.

I bought Madeleine Vionnet by Betty Kirke, a large format hardcover which transcribes Vionnet's flat patterns onto page. They are really fun to study and try to visualize 3d in your mind. Last year for my couture class I was intent on realizing at least a few in fabric ... as a training exercise, extracurricular style. Not to happen. I need unimpeded TIME ... more than food, youth, or sex, free time is my ultimate craving. And I only have snips of it enough to blog about what I would like to do with it ...maybe once I have weekends back (and not those when I'm just trying to catch up on sleep or detox) ... in a few months?
