So for my knitwear class I designed a 23 piece line, but I only actually patterned and completed 5 pieces for the class. We had to design a lot more to make sure we had a cohesive line and then we picked the ones we actually design. After I designed the pieces, I draped a couple of the garments to create the patterns and I pattern drafted the rest of them. The biggest challenge was the crotch on the leggings. I made five samples before they did not gather and bunch terribly. Everything else came together very easily.
My knitwear line is called Lovely, Creepy, Daydream. It is based toward the creepy/cute genre of clothing, kind of an homage to pastel goth.
I hope you all like it!!!!
The first image is my concept board. I will write descriptions above all the garments
The first garment is a dress with a heavy "ooze" peplum
The second is a shirt that is sheer and has an opaque bow on the front. This is made to be worn with a set of leggings which will be in the next photograph. I did not make the skirt in this picture, just the shirt. I dyed the fabric for the collar and the bow.
Here are the leggings. They are a 4-way stretch, and the tights at the bottom disconnect so you can wear different tights depending on your outfit for the day.
Here are the leggings paired with the shirt. Sorry it is kind of blurry.
This is a bathing suit. The heart piece is hand stitched on the front, as well as the little one on the back of the bottoms.
This cobweb dress was made as a cover-up for the swimwear. I dyed the fabric and it has a slight purple tint which does not show up in the picture. I also dyed the collar and cuff pieces, and the bow pockets. Oh yeah, the little bows on the side are pockets.
