After attending a Julian Roberts Subtraction Cutting seminar in Liverpool last year. I finally got around to experimenting with this different pattern cutting technique. Roberts views the body from a birds eye view and his dresses are based on tubes.A piece of Fabric is sewn together and resembles a sleeping bag with an opening which will become the hem of the dress when finished. Front & Back bodices are thrown on the fabric randomly and joined together with drawn lines which are then cut out and sewn at the shoulder and side seams. Below is my 1st experiment using circles which were sewn together to add more volume. I also mixed two fabrics together to see where they would fall.
