I wanted to post this earlier... but I got sidetracked.
Anyway... Here are a few snippets from some of my Junior College projects that were done somewhere between 1998-2002...
I was (and still am) interested in Costume Design...
So this particular project was from a class I picked for my elective. This is still one of my favorite projects!
There is very little machine work on this jacket. The majority of the jacket was done by hand, which makes it that much more special. I used a different mannequin so I had a little trouble fitting this on my mannequin, but you get the idea. We ran out of time as this project took a bit more time than anticipated (as usual), but there was an option to make a ridiculously large gathered skirt to accompany it. It required a ridiculous amount of fabric, so I passed.
Lots of handwork (stitching, tubing, pleating, adding bones and bone casing).
Advanced Clothing Construction:
Corset. Included design and construction. My final design (I designed 4) included grommets/lacing, hidden boning, reversible back zipper and the corset is reversible. *Sigh* Gotta love the ambitious student. The pinning is for future bust modification.
