Circle Knit Shirt Tutorial

About time – balloon clothes have been sidelined to the backwaters of fashion for too long in my opinion… and not through any fault of their own, although they probably wouldn’t fit me etc. There are loads of them here – although nothing quite up to this standard : Which is a bit like a Zorb made by someone who’s read about them, but who hasn’t quite grasped the basic concept. Still, this latest lot are cool: Although you’d have to drink through a straw etc, and could only eat things smaller than the gaps between the balloons – but maybe that’s a good thing.

And they’d probably serve a dual protective function as well – similar to what this guy was trying to achieve or this… Which is quite cool as well. I think the ultimate would be wearable bouncy castles. That would be cool. Vogue Magazine Cover Archive. Shwinandshwinarchive. Fashion Institute of Technology - Patternmaking.
