This was my first design from drawing board to finished project I have ever done. I used silk and rayon. My goal was to use Jean Harlow’s fashion style as an inspiration, and I did not want to directly copy it. I was experimenting with adding volume by using curves instead of godets.
To push myself creatively
I started with sketches, but was much more successful with draping and playing with the dress form. My end design did come close to my sketch however.
Stay focused on one design. I lost a lot of time doing many variations. Make it work =)
It was so much fun, I learned a lot, and I can’t wait to do it again.
