thanks for bringing this thread back - this stuff is amazing and i'm getting so many ideas for things to make

grey, you mentioned towards the beginning of this thread that you threw a wool blazer into the wash to shrink it a la comme...did you ever do anything with it?

If anyone is in NY between now and I believe the 26th of March, there's a lovely exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt design museum uptown near the Met. I just went today and they have the most beautiful CdG/Junya dresses on display, all the polyester organzas, just yummy...

yep...
i have it...it looks good......
but the wool is sooo itchy that i don't wear it often...
also...it's brown tweed/check...and we all know how much i wear brown...
...
thanks for reminding me about it...
i will have to make an effort to wear it now...

went to that exhibit with a couple of other tfs-ers bird of paradise...
thought it was great as well...
then went to a consignment store in the lower east side that specializes in vintage japanese designers (it's called YU)...
and they had some of the polyester organzas for sale...
it was so cool to see it at the exhibit and then be able to touch it and turn it inside out to see how it's made, etc...

* i highly recommend that show!!...
it's really well done...
much better than the average fashion exhibit...

travolta you luck devil......
please post whatever you can....
thanks!!!...

I'm not sure if this was from 80's or 90's. I scanned it from a book along time ago, can't remember the name for it unfortunately

it WILL lose some of its shape...
that is what i liked...
but it will also most likely shrink...even in cold water...
so if you don't want that...
don't do it...!!...

mine was originally a bit big and now it is 'shrunken'...
but it looks good that way...

:p

Thanks:-) I want to boil it but my biggest fear is that it will "shrink pernamently" to XXXS:-) I need XS-S and the jkt is now slightly big and long on me. Maybe I should try in cold water first. I'd love the "wrinkled boiled wool":-P
