For the final project our assignment is to go to the Fowler exhibit to observe and see the artist collection. What caught my eye is the skeleton that is wearing a hat and cape.
So I decided to interpreted that into my own design, so we were ask for 5-7 sketches and above are my sketches.
Out if all my design I wanted to the dolman sleeve dress with a hoodie. But I did not realize that I had to put a zipper on the dress otherwise it would fit. So that kinda ruined my design of of the good because dolman sleeves are already baggy enough I didn’t think it would look good with a hood.
I got my fabrics at downtown, I was pretty set with using black as my themes color and I wanted this silky fabric. So I ended finding a black silky fabric which is really smooth, and a nude color acetate and lace.
The process of cutting the silky fabric was horrible, it runs and so hard to sew. But overall I enjoyed taking this class and doing this final piece but I got to draft my own patter. If I could do it over again, I would just a better design and more of a vibrant color because I think my dress is not catchy. Maybe if I get a chance I would design something more out there than playing safe.
My garment “half naked” is ispired by the image above. I used a black silky fabric as the main color, I incorporated the center-front with nude color lace along with a purple 20 inch zipper on the back.
