Hi all.
I've been a lurker here for a long time, and never got around to actually posting some of the stuff I've made.
I mostly do costumes and Lolita clothing, but last semester I made three pieces of "normal" clothing. XD
I am majoring in Fashion Design at Framingham State College. I am currently a junior. These garments were made in the second semester of my sophomore year. It was the most fun I'd ever had in a semester! My only classes were my sewing classes, so I was in my glory!
Anyway, onto the projects....

1.Flat Pattern design final project.
This dress is made of silver tafetta with silver tulle under the skirt part. I drafted the pattern from a sloper. It's hard to see in the picture, but the bodice has pintucks that go in different directions in each panel. It took a long time to shape the pattern pieces because I had to fold each piece of paper into the tucks, then trace the pattern on top of it. Some of my pattern pieces looked like trees!


2. Draping final project
This dress was inspired by the fabric. I just adore it. The plaid is a super stretchy spandex with a bias print. I didn't have much of it, so I couldn't do as full of a train as I wanted. The pictures I have are in progress pictures, I haven't gotten a chance to photograph it completed yet. The final piece is pretty similar, except there is a black band around the bustline and at the hipline where the skirt attaches, and a cute bow where the slit is. The cool thing about this dress is that the draped train detaches to make it into a short mini-dress. My favorite part is the spiraled bodice though, it was really fun to drape that.


3.Tailoring Final Project
This outfit was made from two Vogue patterns. The fabric is 100% wool with a silk lining. The jacket and skirt was made using couture techniques such as padstitching, hand bound buttonholes, fell stitched twill tape around the outside seam lines, and hand made shoulder pads. The skirt has a taped hem with a lining and a bias finished facing. It was such a great learning experience!



Thanks for looking!

Wow, you do really great work!   I especially love the tartan train dress.  I has just about everything I love incorporated into one piece of clothing!  Amazing job, I am sure you got all 'A's and I'm looking forward to seeing your clothing line someday!

Oh, wow!  The first one reminds me of a mermaid.
The plaid is my very favorite.  It's rare (like, never) that you see a punky-schoolgirl-ballgown pulled off right!
The suit is really nice.  I bet you could wear that anywhere and get a job.

Way to go. These projects are awesome.  When your clothes are sold in chic boutiques, I might even shop in such things.

I especially love the jacket! It looks like you're an Englishwoman going out for a ride-sidesaddle of course!

Those are all gorgeous!!!   You are amazing!
I don't know what it is, but something in me looooves the plaid.
And I applaud your patience with all the tucks in the first one!

They are gorgeous!  I would buy that suit if I saw it in a store -- it looks so perfectly fitted and well-made.  It'd look great on me too...
