Hi there! I don't have many posts, but I wanted to share with you guys some more of my designs from my portfolio that I completed in May for my college.  I just want to know what you guys think of what I've been working on Smiley  This is just a few, but if you want to see my entire online portfolio its at http://kristenanderson.carbonmade.com

I made this for my draping class

These two were made for my independent study my senior year spring semester, I mixed a lot of knits with wovens and tried to make a collection, though several pieces have yet to be photographed

I loved the fabric for this dress, it has pockets in the side seams of the skirt. 

This dress used to be an AWFUL long sleeved, crew necked long dress, but I LOVED the color.  I got it at a store called Twice as Nice near pembroke MA for like 3 bucks and turned it into this little thing:

Anyway, I had a lot of fun making my portfolio and I'm glad I've had time to show you guys some of the stuff I've made! Check out my portfolio to see the sketches Smiley http://kristenanderson.carbonmade.com

I especially like the super-long maxi dress.  I have some fabric similar to it...maybe I will emulate this dress! (but not quite so plunging a neckline!   Shocked )

Your work is excellent. I love how some of the designs are kind of sporty but still feminine and beautiful. I like the white dress and the pink dress the most  Grin. I'll definitely be checking out your website and I'd love to see the rest of your knit/woven collection.

Thanks for the feedback guys!  What's really funny/odd about that maxi dress is that I totally made it like a year and a half ago, before they really came back with a vengeance! lol
