Inspired by the the reoccurring theme of death and honoring of the dead at the In Extremis exhibit, my dolman jumpsuit channels the presence of Texjana singer Selena, by the detail ruffles on the sleeves and neck and curves that this dolman jumpsuit highlights by the belted waist. Using black to represent the color of death and the soft pink and creme ruffle details representing bone remains of a decomposing body, together these harsh elements create a feminine display.
HOLY MOLY!!! It’s about time I get something! I finished the dress. Okay, so the sewing could be better, but I finished!!! I’m feeling success. I really enjoyed this project because it came easiest to me. I see places that could use improvements, like the sleeve bias strip, but I really think this might be e pattern I choose for my final project.
Well, i really tried my best. This project definitely wasnt my best work. I would have been cut if I were on project runway. But one positive, I really think my tension got a lot better . 🙂 I worked til the last minute, and I couldn’t seem to get it together to finish in time. But, it’ll be perfect come portfolio review day!
Who knew knits were even harder to sew?! I think sewing has been my biggest challenge in this class. While this pattern took unnecessarily longer than normal to draft, it was not the most difficult aspect of the project. -I hope I did it right though! That being said, I have been pleasantly surprised when these projects don’t turn out as difficult as I thought they would walking into it.
After my first attempt to pattern making with the bodice sloper, our next assigment shouldn’t have seemed as daunting. While, the Shorts and Skirt sloper were much more managable, the fatique of a full load of classes, work and extra curricular activites, made this asssignment the more tiresome. What ever the reasons, it was completed. Now, with these basic slopers completed, it is my hope that furture pattens should come easier. -At least, that’s the hope.
