In Fashion Design, students learn about the basics of fashion design while studying professional fashion practices. Students draw croquis', sew, and construct garments.
Garment construction is an important process of fashion design. The techniques of clothing construction have been masted by seamstresses for decades. Those techniques have fallen by the wayside with our current younger generations. As fashion designers, you must learn those techniques and improve upon them. A fantastic way to learn is to jump into a project and learn by doing. Many sewers have learned that way.
Your assignment is to create a personal garment of your choice. The garment must be made to measure your dimensions. The garment can be a dress, a blouse, a shirt, a coat, a skirt, etc. You must document your process with pictures. Use your ipad to take them. You can compile them into a slideshow using your favorite iPad app. Make sure you get a few with yourself in the photos.
Write down the steps of the garment construction (be specific) and attach photographs of yourself in progress. You may use a video if you choose. Place the photographs and steps together in a document or create a slideshow with the text or your voice describing the steps.
Creativity (altering the pattern where needed)
Technical Quality (no loose threads, finishing is nice and clean)
