1  Swimsuit & Cover-up - snow-inspired! (Image heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aliz on: November 16, 2008 07:00:44 PM
Hey, haven't posted on these forums for ages (been very busy with uni!) but I'm back now and I've made lots of things!!! I thought I'd post one a day until I'm all caught up.
This was one of my main projects for this semester, we had to design a swimsuit and cover-up around our own interpretation of an 'Australiana' theme. I grew up in the Snowy Mountains, so, while it's not typically what everyone associates with Australia, I chose to design my collection inspired by the snowy mountains in NSW - my australia!

so, the swimsuit:

and the cover-up (inspired by typically snuggly winter clothing):

2  Uni project - pleated dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aliz on: June 15, 2008 02:55:40 AM
our major project this semester was to get fabric pleated and drape a dress inspired by one of the poems we were given. my poem was called 'Grey' and I was working with the line 'simply grey like a world falling into decay'. I was really disappointed with it at first cause the proportions ended up being completely different to what I wanted, so the dress doesn't look very good on my but luckily, it looks great on my friend jess who was my model for the presentation. yay! (it's probably obvious from the poem, but my dress is the grey one).

3  Retro TV t-shirts in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by aliz on: January 08, 2008 12:25:57 AM
Hey! this was a very quick project, just filling in some time!

I used to draw this little tv on books at school, and I thought of it the other day and made a paper stencil from it

The blue shirt is for me and the white is for my flatmate - soon to be my ex-flatmate!  Cry
hope you like it!

I'm so glad you noticed the button! haha.
here's a shot of the skirt being worn:

It's not really spectacular, when I get it back from marking I'll have to do some sort of crazy photoshoot and style it properly. any ideas for styling? Its such a complex skirt, I don't know whether to pair it with something simple or just pile on more craziness. I'm open to suggestions!

5  Chanel Inspired 1920s Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aliz on: November 27, 2007 04:21:05 AM
This was my high school major project - so I did it two years ago but realised it hasn't been posted here and I still love it, so:

this is me wearing it earlier this year for a 1920s party

and this is the page from my project submission that had my lil photoshoot on it - I made the dress, jacket and bag all to go with the shoes

 I'm still so proud of it! I'm not usually a perfectionist with my projects but with this one I had to be.

6  My Cute lil' giraffe in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by aliz on: November 20, 2007 10:37:09 PM
It's a pretty small project, but this lil guy ended up being so cute I had to share:

I was helping a friend do some printing and decided to do something for myself while we had all the printing stuff out - I've been drawing this little giraffe on things for years so I thought I'd make a quick stencil and it turned out really well, don't you think?

7  Pucci-inspired dress - super easy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aliz on: November 20, 2007 10:25:06 PM
I found this fabric and just had to buy lots of it!
Of course the fabric is so bright and busy that I wanted to design something really simple - so here it is, the one-piece dress!

Yes, it's cut from one piece of fabric - the only seams are the side seams and finishing seams at the neck, armholes and hem - no zip, no anything. SOOO simple and quick to make and I love it! I think I will live in these all summer!

8  Bauhaus Kandinsky-inspired skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aliz on: November 20, 2007 06:24:17 PM
I know it sounds kinda wanky in the title but it was for an assignment at uni, I don't always go around making skirts inspired by paintings! although I'm thinking that I should, cause it worked out pretty well!
So I was inspired by Kandinsky's Unbroken Line:

And this is what I created:

We had to design, make our own patterns and sew the whole thing. the little black lines on the white fabric are black wire bent into shape and sewn on. I'm not really happy with the one I did on the back so I just won't show it to you! If only I had that option with my teacher...

9  BIG silkscreen project for university in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by aliz on: November 13, 2007 04:45:51 PM
So my final project for the Textile Design Method subject was to design a range of 7 fabrics inspired by a subculture chosen from a given list.
Being a major 60s Brit rock fan I chose Mods and narrowed it to mod music as an excuse to make awesome drum and guitar prints. I have two more huge assignments to do by friday so instead of wasting time posting this project everywhere, I'll give you this teaser:

 and direct you to http://makeaheart.blogspot.com for the rest! sneaky I know.  Smiley
Oh and just to be nitpicky, I know the pattern's really not straight, but we weren't being marked on registering the patterns and we had very limited time to print these so I didn't put much effort into registration.
And the little bit on the side of each record that didn't print? gunk on my screen - I didn't expose the screen, the workshop guy at uni did, and I was not happy with this! oh well. I just handed this in. enjoy!

here's everything all wrapped up:

Item 1: A leather giraffe keychain! so cool!

Item 1 in action: on my bag that I take to uni everyday.. it's like I have my own personal herd of giraffes!

Item 2: "Jar of Giraffes embroidered cuff with a little bit of buttony goodness!" the embroidery on this is beautiful!

Item 2 in action!

And the "buttony goodness" side:

I LOVE this cuff. I'm wearing it now. Jen, I also decided that you should go into business with the brand name "Cuffs by Huff"

Item 3 is a "Hand knit, wet felted Giraffe Love Handbag lined with cotton print fabric

love the colours!

Handbag back:

and lining (beautiful fabric, by the way):

AND a lovely, completely natural (lol) action shot of everything being used at once:

So that is my amazing package!! Once again sorry to post sooo many photos but everything was SO well made I had to show every possible angle!
Thanks again Huff!
