Drop Your Sword

drop your sworddrop your sworddrop your sworddrop your sword

I’ve been taking an Intro to Clothing Construction class at Otis and this is my second project.  Initially patterned to be drawstring cargo pants, my stubborn personality and mum’s borrowed sewing machine gnawed at my docile student’s better half.  So I took a risk.  After much laboured sewing and as much time spent ripping seams, here it is.  My inspiration was taken from Rag & Bone and samurai gear.  Be gentle with the commentary.  I’m only a novice of thread and needle.
