flats 1 when fashion gets technical

A huge part of studying fashion design involves learning to produce working drawings. These are technically accurate designs of garments, usually done using a CAD package such as Adobe Illustrator. One of my Summer projects set by my lecturers is to technically draw a complete collection by a final year student from the previous year. My initial thoughts on this were that it seemed pointless to draw somebody else’s designs when we are supposed to be studying design. However! Now that I’m making progress with this project, it really has challenged me with parts of the designs that were hard to draw, which I may have just adapted if it had been my own design.

The next challenge is to toile the above design which will involves creating a pattern and fitting it to the standard size 12. All before September 27th – panic mode starting to kick in! I’m sure this will bring even more challenges to overcome as I’m not the most confident sewer…
