Half-sewn muslin, 1947 The Collection includes an extraordinary group of sewn muslins and flat patterns that represent James' design process from original concept to the finished garment. Several clients gave supporting material along with the actual garments. In some cases, the garments are accompanied by materials that represent all of James' design phases—two flat patterns (paper and muslin) and two sewn muslins (half and full).
