izodiea: (olive 18th)
I finally finished one of the Knit garments I cut out forever ago. It took me a while because I needed to mark the fringe while I was wearing it (to avoid puckering) and then I had to hand stitch it all down. Photos. )
I also uploaded some detail Pictures of the 18th Century hair style I did for the GBACG Open house: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48512843@N04/sets/72157625918756539/
In them you can see the padding, as well as the fake bits pretty well.

AND now back to homework, break time is over.

In my computer pattern drafting class we were given the assignment of replicating (Knocking-off) a garment. Because I really love Free People (and they are $$) I copied a sweatshirt I got for my birthday two years ago. The Photo above is the sweatshirt style in question, mine is dark gray, and my copy black.

The pattern drafting (CAD) program we use is Gerber, and I really hate it. I really really hate it! I am a mac person, and this Program pretty much is everything I could possibly hate about PCs crammed into one program, with crack. Unfortunately their doesn't seem to be any industry competition...I'm looking at you adobe...

The journey and Finished Sweatshirt!  )

On my last school break, I decided to cut out a bunch of clothes for myself (All knits) Leggings, T-shirts and dresses. I also decided to add trim to a few clothes I already have. The Idea behind all this was I could work on them as I got the chance during my quarter.

This is what I have finished so far, or why I now own 15 pairs of leggings… ) And now that there is some proof that my inner fashion student exists, I am going to go back to thinking about costumes...or maybe just do my homework!

One of my classes is called creative draping, and is specifically geared towards teaching things that can only be achieved with draping. (Garments that couldn't be drafted on paper etc.) The style the teacher uses is very different than what I am used to, but I find it very enjoyable despite the occasional "lost" feeling. I say "lost" because we are not allowed to start thinking (No sketching etc.) about what we want to drape before we start...we just have to do it.

For example, the first day of class I was given six yards of Sheer pink polyester knit, a mannequin and told to drape a one-seam dress before the end of class. GO! When we (my fellow students and I) tried to ask what she meant by "One seam" she replied we were just to start, and if she saw us doing it wrong, she would tell us...

Closer to the end of class (When we all had something dress like) She gave a more detailed explanation. She wanted us to make a dress that looked as if it had "incomprehensible" construction. It could have more than "one seam" but none of them could be of a traditional style or placement.

This is my final result in fashion Fabric:
My dress actually ended up being fairly "one-seam". The entire skirt is one piece (If you don't count joining panels) and the bodice, straps and pocket are all one piece. Where the skirt is sewn to the bodice (And straps to skirt) is just one big seam making a jagged circle around the garment.
I love weird Functional pockets!!!
