Issey Miyake Vogue Designer Original - Vogue 1204


Line Art

MISSES' TUNIC AND PANTS: Very loose-fitting tunic has tuck details, large collar, full length sleeves with plackets and cuffs.  Fitted, below waist pants has front side slant pockets, back patchpockets, fly zipper closing, back yoke, waistband, carriers and topstitch trim.

For my next project I have just cut out Vogue 1204 in a nice white cotton.  There are not too many pieces to this, but I am not going to lull myself into a forced sense of security because I am sure that I will have to take the upmost care when stitching the tuck details.

I checked out PR and the only reviews for this pattern are for the jeans not the tunic top, so I am out there on my own with this one.

I like the simplicity of this Issey Miyake design with all the emphasis in the tuck details.

I would like to enter this into the SAM, however once again I feel I may be putting a bit of my own interpretation as to what is a shirt.

Done all I can for tonight, hopefully I will be able to do some more tomorrow.

Catch you later...................


  1. Looking foward to see your own twist xx

  2. Looking forward to see this done up. "Is it a shirt or isn't it" is the million dollar question. Put it up and see what the response is.

  3. I say it is a shirt. It is designed to be made out of woven fabric and is on the dressier side. Of course, I am not dragonlady so I suppose my opinion isn't worth a whole lot. :-)

  4. looks a really interesting shirt _ I think it is anyway - looking forward to seeing the finished result.

  5. Been eyeing this one myself for a while but don't have the confidence to tackle it. Can't wait for your version and review.

  6. I do have this pattern and not made up yet, so another one looking forward to your version.
