Description

This is my final piece for my Higher Art Fashion Design study :) I made the pattern myself and made the attachments. This fabric was so cheap – amazing to work with.

      Thank you :)
      I’m from scotland and when you take Art at higher level, you do an expressive project (painting) and a design project. In the design project you can design anything from clothes, furniture, lighting, vases. I choose fashion and textiles as my project and started working from there :)

      Thank you! I’m serious though, I really did not expect this kind of reaction! It’s spurred me on to crack on with new designs!

      It was as simple as cutting out circles of fabric and pinching them in the centre! I then bundled a few of them together and sewed across with the machine to keep them together, then hand sewed on. I tacked small bits of the attachment to the dress to ‘open up’ the attachments! I’m so glad you like it! :)

    I love it. I think it may be high art fashion but very wearable. Great job.

      Thats what I was going for! My brief was ‘an unique but attention seeking dress to be worn to the Chelsea Flower Show’ :)

      I did weaving and then made outfits. Using a woolen woven fabric I made a trouser suit . Using tablet weaving I trimmed hot pants. I also did tailoring and made a coat using Crombie fabric and made military style " frog " fastenings and covered buttons in real snakeskin !!

      I was aiming to get the effect of the gills to mushrooms, but I thought they ended up looking more like flowers! Ended up better than I expected! Thank you for your comment :)
