Special Projects

Of the 3 pattern repeats, the Western Wildfires Jacket, required the most attention to detail. Reese's jackets are known to be quite complex– with his signature utilitarian pocketing and in this case, 30+ individual pattern pieces– and the task was to align a full-scale image seamlessly throughout the jacket. 

 

Using Adobe Illustrator,  I separated and aligned each piece relative to the image– considering the various seam allowance and undersides of pocket flaps and yokes. In the end, I was able to accomplish the task and create the most efficient fabric yield for printing.

I helped two additional pattern repeats used throughout his F/W '21 Runway Collection (below).
