One down 10 or so to go...

Well, I finished the first dress I draped in class. My first project from illustration
first dress in draping class
to finished dress
The fabrics are both silk crepe back satin in lemon yellow and charcoal grey.
The dress has ties on the inside side seam and a looped tie on the left side. It will be hemmed at the first model fitting for our school fashion show this may.
I have so much sewing to do but I am making pretty good progress.
On another note, I am learning some cad and have my first attempt at cad flats with prints.
alexia flats
I used some flats I had already drawn for work and scanned them into photoshop.
It's fun learning new tricks!
I have some illustration projects finished that I have worked tirelessly over and I'll scan those to show and tell :)


making progress

I am continuing forward to the next step in the designing "process" we are following in my design and illustration class. I finished all of my are a few
I then had to edit down to my favorite six designs, then photocopy those six and play with color and fabric.

color 4
color 3
Now I have to pick my favorite four and complete illustrations of those designs.
It is difficult to know how to edit down to six and then four and still have a cohesive "collection."
I have also been sewing on the yellow silk wrap dress and I will take a pic of that tomorrow when I have a dress form to put it on!
