rkaveney2 (22:43:25): Where everything is slightly skewed
rkaveney2 (22:43:32): Yet it looks fabulous
rkaveney2 (22:43:53): The skirt is slashed at the front and hangs asymettrically
rkaveney2 (22:44:20): The jacket is all lapel and high waist

It is sort of as if a cubist or futurist took the classic little black suit and spun it through a spatial axis or two.
This is not just frockporn - I need this to work as a piece of imagery for the story unfortunately - the tailoring process is important for other reasons than itself. As Heather rightly points out, I need to have some real sense of how it works as a piece of tailoring which means I need a stronger visual image for reference than the one in my head. Because then I can work my way mentally through how it would get designed, cut and the rest of it...
