Hi Karen,

One of Marcy Tilton's newer tops would be a great project.

I noticed a couple of Lyla Messinger's asymmetric designs recently:
http://www.thesewingplace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=183 - I'd suggest looking at the thumbnail image for this one to get a better view of the neckline.
In case you haven't looked yet at the Sewing Workshop, you could consider The Hibiscus Shirt, Liberty Shirt and the Zona Shirt - among others.
  Enjoy your upcoming weekend, Karen!

When using Paint, to crop a picture or in this case the white out of your picture, use the select tool, top right square button on the side bar. Drag the lines around the part of the picture you want to keep, then right click and scroll down to almost the bottom of the options to the crop tab. Click on the crop tap and then save.

Take your pick...I got distracted while looking for a better photo of a recent Mrs Stylebook design:
http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/qXOGB8qSSplZG3ChxTt5cw?feat=em...
The short pants look quite normal, but that's just what they are not. The legs are rotated outward to create a big cut-on crotch gusset. Then, one leg is cut narrow, while the other is big and balloony. I've seen quite a lot of similar takes this year on girls ultrashort hotpants or men's knee-length shorts - one leg longer, and one leg has fullness caught in by pleats at hem, or horizontal tucks, etc etc.

So this is what else I found:

restrained asymmetry...hemline is even, skort front panel is asymmetrical (Ylang Ylang design)
http://www.nuan.gr.jp/sf/Category.do?catID=10255014

scroll down...short pants with wrap front subbed for zipper opening (i.e. leg doesn't wrap over, only torso portion), asymmetric fastening on hip yoke
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/fitpromotion/kg62r029r/

medical scrubs with asymmetrical collar
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/amu-kai/3707/

elegant sheath with asymmetrical collar
http://www.flickr.com/photos/carbonated/3348607265/

Can't find an image online any more...textury top with large asymmetrical collar on one side creating diagonal line, same line reflected in diagonal panel in front body. (Ian Snow design).

Asymmetric front closing with asymmetric diagonal shoulder darts and collar
http://www.thepursuitaesthetic.com/?p=2167

Curved asymmetric front closure
http://thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp/s/?@0_mall/jimu/cabinet/010410...

skants with asymmetrical overskirt
http://www.cisimon.com/product.php?Doo=ContentView&id=1230
(I've seen skants with simpler asymmetrical wrap-style overskirt...looks like this version, with skirt panels falling from hip yoke)
http://www.cisimon.com/product.php?Doo=ContentView&id=1120

super-asymmetrical draped culotte pants...reversible (no front/back)
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/e-zakkamania/33451-0902710/

extremely crazy asymmetric shorts, made to look as if you're wearing them with one leg upside down...
http://www.charmworld.jp/index.php?module=Item&action=Item&item_id=...

Maybe no need to do it in PE, but asymmetrical balloon skirts are around...some with unevenly placed tiers of balloon ruffles, or asymmetrically horizontally tucked underskirts under a balloon overskirt layer (no photos, observed on local students!).
Also hardly needing PE are asymmetric ruffles...but here's a one-shoulder stunner that might look good with with slightly contrasting textures in a winter version too.

Vivienne Westwood asymmetrical gathers on skirt (suit)
http://www.farfetch.com/item10019460.aspx?utm_source=LynkU&utm_medi...

asymmetrical shoulder darts, asymmetrical blocking (knit top)
http://shop.yumetenpo.jp/goods/templateImgPopup.jsp?imgUrl=/goodsim...

asymmetrical draping (knit top)
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/dab/1049890

girl's skirt with simple asymmetrical panel, accentuated with asymmetrical pocket placement
http://mon-chouchou.ocnk.net/zoom/2458

...enough to be going on with?!

PS - one garment that is often asymmetric in Japan is the apron or apron dress...often waist aprons or the skirts on full aprons are made so that they wrap right round, with the wrapover forming a flattering diagonal in front.

Another is the one-shoulder apron made famous by Katsuyo Kobayashi - she apparently used to get all kinds of wacky apron designs to liven up her shows, but found this design so comfortable that it's been her trademark for 20 years or more!
http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/goods/imgs/a/8/a8d9a0b1.jpg

Click on the photo to see a close-up, showing the shoulder tucks.
http://www.php.co.jp/manabica/detail.php?id=55819

This link shows how to draft (measurements in cms) and sew a similar apron without the shoulder tucks (small-med size). The shoulder strap simply buttons onto the back panels at center back.

Wow - the American designs are very tame compared to the Japanese ones.

Katsuyo Kobayashi - I'm sure I saw her on one of the the original "Iron Chef" programs. She was the invited, intended competitor, but when they called her in, her husband walked in first and gave permission for her to work. I also think he stayed around while she and her team cooked. It was interesting.

the skorts look like thai fisherman pants:
http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/008262.html

and the scrubs remind me of the wrap top in curves

the victoria's secret tunic looks like something i wore in the 70s:

i still haven't taken pictures for you, karen, so sorry, i'm neck deep in the 18th century here.

I think Rowena was thinking of the PJ Top in Curves.

The wrap top is cute too - I saw the same top in Title 9.

I am now back from vacation so will leave this up another few days and then get to work.

Both of those patterns make up very nicely for regular wear.  Liz Williams made a jacket from the pJ top and received tons of compliments on it at Puyallup.

karen, i'm still trying to find pictures of the skirt, actually i'm still trying to find the skirt too.    i think i donated it to shakespeare in the park.

here is a picture of the nursing top.  the quality of the picture is really poor because it was made in the dark ages when all i had was a digital video camera--this is a still from that.  about 14 years ago.  the nursing slits are under the flaps.
