L'edge: Party Ready Vest Suit

Added Jan 2, 2011

Boulder, Colorad...






Look 5 from my senior design line, L’edge fall 2011 children’s formal occasion wear. This darling three-year-old took some coaxing to get only four “good” pics, but the vest looks good just the same! All flat-drafted patterns and manipulated with my university’s CAD pattern software. I intended the clothes to allow a child to be active and as you can see from the second pic, he did just that and ran from us…

The final photo is the logo I created in Adobe Illustrator and used parts on the pockets. On the right pocket of these jeans and the brown is the L, on the left is the cliff. On the shirts’ patch pockets is the L as well (not shown); on the jacket and vest patch pocket is the cliff.

    You’re play with the thread and top-stitching is wonderful. Love the color combo. And what exactly is stitched on the back pocket of the jeans? Logo? Design?

      Thanks kelepso! Yes, on the right pocket is the L and on the left is my image logo. I’ll post my logo so it makes sense. It’s also on the Outdoor Affair (brown suit) outfit.

      How’d you stitch on? Free hand with a general machine or a embroidery machine?

      I made a stencil design and stitched on my home sewing machine (straight and zig-zag)
