Description

Final project for a flat-pattern drafting class several years ago; I drafted the pattern myself. The electrical engineering department at my undergrad university (where I majored in computer science) donated the dead microchips, and I got the resistors at Radio Shack.


(Note that the cool-looking mesh thingy is the dress form and not part of the dress.)

Material Notes

rayon velvet, silk lining, gold metallic braid, resistors, microchips, round silver studs

Difficulty

Advanced
