Tie to shirt

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.
