Large manipulated knitted fabric...

This piece of fabric is made up of two smaller samples. It is an example of how I would like to create my garment, by using smaller pieces to construct one large unexpected and unplanned garment. As the fabric construction is a very intricate and lengthy process, it is difficult to design a garment structure with the normal technologically aided design. It will need more of a manual trial and error approach, whereby, as the fabric begins to grow, I will pin it on a mannequin to help identify my next move. This procedure allows the garment to become more abstract and less obviously 'designed'.
