The name of our site originates from two sewing techniques designed to shape a flat piece of cloth to the curvatures of the human body. Pleats extend outward and give volume; darts extend inward and reduce volume.
This fascinating top uses a dart vertically across the chest that becomes a tie knot. The subtlety of the fabric emphasises the complexity and irony of the seamstress. Truly a work of art.
Designer is unknown.
