For this project. I used one of my very own designs that I designed in the Fashion Design course using Illustrator with Donald Procunier. My drawing is slightly different. As when I went to look for fabric I couldn’t exactly find what was in my drawing. I chose a crop top with a thick strap that crosses in the back. For the bottom I chose a high waist-ed fitted skirt. For this project I also used the summer sloper kit. The tutorials in this kit were also very helpful in creating your own patterns from a basic sloper. It was raining here in Massachusetts, so I used it to my advantage and did a rainy photo-shoot on the train tracks.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
