HOW TO: Episode 7 – Duffle Bag & Sculptural Silk Top
It’s the penultimate episode of our HOW TO: Series and in episode 7 our guest designer Rebecca Harrison joins us to make a Weekend Duffle Bag and a Sculptural Silk Top.
Using her expert dressmaking skills, Rebecca demonstrates how to create an amazing sculptural top inspired by origami and taken from the pattern-cutting book ‘Pattern Magic’ by Tomoko Nakamichi.
Rebecca shows us how to prepare the pattern to sew the fabric into the intricate shapes as seen on the catwalks. The top can be worn as it is or attached to a skirt to create a pretty party dress.
For inspiration, take a look at our Sculptural Garments Moodboard

We will also be showing how to make a small duffle bag using a variety of simple bagmaking techniques.
