1  Re: Electro Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mixedtape86 on: July 18, 2007 03:20:21 PM

that is the rest of the collection on the day it was displayed for moderation.

I don't really have any other photos because I have come home for the summer leaving all my work in portfolio's in a storage facility!!!  In september (when I move back to university) I will be completely updating my work portfolio on www.beckyharris.co.uk so i'll post on here when it's done!!

The jewellery on the pinboard is mostly hama beads - it was another side project to compliment the range of streetwear fabrics I designed.

Here are a couple of illustrations from the project

this was a jersey fabric I printed directly using a mimaki computerised ink-jet printer.  The actual fabric is gorgeous and even though it was horribly expensive to print I will be doing more in the future.  The pattern on the fabric was an original illustration by myself in adobe illustrator.

This was the illustration of the 'electro dress'.  It was purely an afterthought but it is an addition to the other illustrations I did.

This was another illustration of a Mimaki print I did.  The graphic on the fabric is another original done in Adobe Illustrator.

Hope you like it!

2  Electro Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mixedtape86 on: July 18, 2007 06:57:47 AM

I am a second year textile design student and I made this dress as a last minute addition to a project I did called 'electro'.

It's made of some cotton i found in the bin!!  The gold stripes were hand applied with Bondaweb and gold leaf and the glasses print is my own design that I screen-printed over the stripes using black pigment.

There was no real pattern, I just lay out the fabric on the floor and tried to get the best design out of the fabric.  The dress is edged with matching purple bias binding that I made myself using cotton remnants and a bias binding maker.

I'm not a fashion student but I like to dabble!

Any feedback would be great!

3  Fitz patterns: Tonia Cape in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mixedtape86 on: April 18, 2006 08:31:21 AM
I just made this this morning

It's a great pattern and although there are no instructions as of yet it's fairly simple to put together.

4  I have knits.... in Knitting: Completed Projects by mixedtape86 on: January 25, 2006 11:08:37 AM
Apologies for the title but it's to the point!


I'm a textile design student and I have just finished my third projects.

The title was curry and the media was knit!  This was my first proper experience with knitting machines and a lot of them are experimenting with various hand techniques using a transfer tool.

Here's my favourite sample!

Please check out my blog to see the rest of the samples (it's one of nine) and comment on anything! I LOVE FEEDBACK!

6  A-level project 05 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mixedtape86 on: December 26, 2005 11:34:23 AM

Just thought it was time i shared my final A-level project with fellow craftsters.  This was a capsule wardrobe consisting of skirt, belt, fitted jacket, reversible top and trousers. The main inspiration was the winter 2004 Moschino Cheap and Chic collection.  The whole lot was made in about 30hrs.

I am considering making some of the belts to sell but am unsure whether I could realistically make a profit as they take just over an hour to make.
