Zero-Waste: Fashion Re-Patterned - photos

Zero-Waste: Fashion Re-Patterned, curated by Arti Sandhu, is open until April 16 - that's Saturday next week, so be sure to visit A + D Gallery at Columbia College Chicago. Thank you to Jennifer Murray, Gallery Director, and Megan Ross, Preparator, for sending the installation photographs. I've also included some process photos.

One of my grandmother's sheets from the 1940s with the patching visible; I used two of these.

Some process for the pyjama pants (see page from Julian Roberts' book):

A Magazine - I used to give these instructions for a sock jumper by Maison Martin Margiela to my students back at UTS so it was great to see them included here:
