HA HA it’s not what you’re thinking . . . I’ve been a bit lazy about posting here, so maybe this will fill some of the gaps . . . the boro concept project is steaming right along – the first concept garment is being worn around the yard in the morning if its cool enough . . .
Ladylu in the first boro . . .

Moving on . . . here’s some pics of the latest boro concept . . . a “xipper” themed boro . . . the “x” in xipper is pronounced the same as the “X” in Xochimilco. . . (The “exotic” spelling is just the result of a keyboard error that I thought would make for interesting commentary.)
This particular boro is based on a suggestion from my youngest daughter who likes zippers, black clothings, and tattoos . . .
this is the back of the boro . . .
Inside pocket . . .
. . . detail.
The pocket is from a pair of Levi’s . . . right front side – inside lining.
These xippers open into the sleeve . . . that’s it, nothing up the sleeve except an arm . . .
This boro solves the problem of what-to-do with all the xippers I cut from the denim jeans that flow through the shop . . . and, what about the button fly pants? See for yourself . . .
Front view, right side w/sleeve . . .
Some photos of a front panel in process . . . chalk and sequence letters.
This xipper will slide, but there’s just fabric behind . . .
There are more photos on my other camera (haven’t shopped them yet) that I’ll put up later, in the meanwhile, check out some of the related boro concept posts on the other blog . . .
