3 weeks back at university and I am already excited!
We currently have 3 projects to be done before Christmas…
1. Jacket – Pattern, Construction and a Booklet (How to…)
2. Style Report
3. Retail Report
I am most looking forward to is the style report, mainly due to the great possibility to be your own boss (as such). Having the freedom to choose what you see trending and how you translate that. A great taster of real life. Secondly, and surprising to myself, construction of the jacket! I do just love watching the process of a garment from being a 2D objects to then becoming a 3D wearable piece! Just boggles me, probably why I love fashion so much.
Also I am trying to brush up on my Indesign skills in order for putting all of the reports together. Struggling a little but I will get there. Maybe I will post the front page soon?
Finished pattern cutting our pieces for the jacket last week. So far so good. Started construction yesterday, went really well, no major problems. Easier than I thought it was going to be however there is still 2 more sessions to go so we shall see! Construction is not normally my strongest point but this year I really want to make the best effort to try to increase my skills further.
On another note. For my final project I produced a corset and in talking to a friend we came up with the idea that we were going to sign up for the Vintage and Fashion Corsetry short corse which our university has available to us. I have had always loved corsets but after constructing one last year I felt that I needed to learn more in-depth to produce much better quality.
