Last quarter I took Apparel 1 (draping), and I designed my final project around the inspiration of A Midsummer Night's Dream and the era of the 1920s. I thought that I'd share with you a bit of the design process that went into making it. I'll share more of the draping and sewing process in the next post when I show the final garment.
Below is the initial croquis. I drew over 40 different design variations and picked the one that I liked best. Below is the one I chose.
Along with the final look, the class was told to pick four other looks to go with the one design to create a five-piece mini capsule collection. Below is the five look lineup that I chose.
Flats were drawn after the muslin stage.
During the time of making the garment we had to keep a process book. Here are a couple different texture pages from it.
Below is a page of a process book that I keep my photography ideas in. The whole time I was envisioning a shoot with white paper butterflies so I sketched it out.

I'll be posting the final dress later this week! I’m very excited to finally share it with you!
