Alright! So I've not really posted much before, but let's get right into it. I'm applying for the fall semester at Ryerson University in Toronto, so these are the dresses I sent to them in my application in February (yikes took me long enough!)

This first one is my own design, done from a basic pattern block.

And yes, this photoshoot was done outside, standing on a skating rink and snow, at -20 plus windchill. yay Canadian winters!



Very titanic-esque I've been told.



This gives you a better idea of the godets inserted to make the skirt more full. A two foot train is hard to add when you've never done it, and don't have any guides to go from.



The real drama of this piece is the back, or lack there of. I had fun shaping it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.



On to the next piece. This pattern is entirely self drafted, made straight from my measurements. the seams point dramatically down from the waist to the hips, with a front pleat and contoured bodice. Lovely burgundy damask. Let me know if anyone wants the pattern?





And here's the bodice. It doesn't wrinkle, it was just hard to sit right off a body.



Last but not least, this was also an art project. I hand bleached the brick design into some broadcloth, then made the stencils and painted those on with a lightweight acrylic. I then splattered neon colours all over it. This is definately one of my more dramatic pieces.



And the outside shot.



The stencils are of a bandana wearing teddy bear, and my name, Kat, if you were wondering.



Thanks for looking, C&C always appreciated!

I really like the third one. Is that your own pattern too? It would look great on my daughter.

The color and the draping on the first dress look great on you. I like how you styled the second dress with the black gloves and the third with the blue pumps. I think these are great portfolio pieces!!

Beautiful!  The long dress is just lovely in the snow, so dramatic.  I'm interested in the pattern to the damask dress if you can post it.

The dresses are very nice. Good job. Hope you get into your school. (I'm sure you will)
On the flipside, I get a chill just looking at you. You must have been FREEZING!  Shocked
