Just a couple of things I made in draping class.

The first is a princess-seamed dress with a peplum.  The skirt pegs in just a little.  I got the floral fabric from school for free and who can resist free fabric?  I was feeling vintage inspired.  Sorry for my sloppy appearance... It'd been a really, sleepless long month.

This is a jacket/coat.  It's almost like a sponged wool that I had interfaced.  I don't have a picture of the lining, but it's a gorgeous poly satin with giant purple roses.  There's tiny pockets in the princess seam.  The back has a center inverted pleat, princess seams with
piping.  The lining hangs straight while the wool balloons to create that shape, and it holds itself up instead of hugging the hips to create the shape.  It looks real good on my tall, skinny friend with hanger-like shoulders, but makes me looks like a potato with limbs.  The skirt is just a simple straight skirt, required in order to make a complete outfit.
