Whew, where has time gone! I have one more week of school, but today was the last day of Draping, my most important and most challenging class. Here are photos of my term garment!
(And I got an A on it. ) Even though the faux leather and the studs on the jacket kind of reacted weirdly. The pleather kind of stretched in a weird way on the collar. But my prof was awesome about it and said I never could have forseen that, and that my design was fantastic. She even got all misty-eye'd today saying she was so proud of us and couldn't believe how good we've all gotten. Awe, it was cute.
Anyway the outfit,
It looks waaay cuter on a person. And tomorrow I get to see it on a person who isn't me! I was selected as one of the designs to be worn by a real model from basic model management in a photo shoot being put on as a final project by the photography majors tomorrow. :)
The leopard is actually a crinkly taffeta-silk. the photos don't do it justice. And the boob part is like a pinstripe black and white....then the brown is the faux leather.
Jacket is ultra suede + Faux leather and is fully lined on the inside with the same pinstripe as on the bodice on the dress. The studs are the real deal, and are really heavy.
2 rows of studs on each sleeve + studs all the way round the collar. The killer was that I actually had twice as many studs on the collar, but then didn't like how it looked, removed them all and repositioned them. And that my friends, is why I have bloody stumps for fingers.
But man, that A was WORTH IT. haha.
