Found this interesting Christian Lacroix outfit at 1st Dibs and it got me thinking about wearable art. This ensemble is from the 90's and is made of elaborately quilted and embroidered patchwork silks. Last year Material Obsession was selling some exquisite kantha coats which were very tempting. At textile shows, I've seen some beautiful quilted kimono style jackets and some less successful sweatshirt conversions. Have always avoided making anything like them as I am rounder than I'd like to be and have never met a "slimming" quilt. May need to rethink my prejudice. Have any of you ever made quilted clothing? Wearable art-tacky or tremendous? Thoughts?
