Abstract

Title: Sticks & Stones Purpose: The purpose was to further my design skills and create a garment that makes the wearer feel elegant and like she is the center of attention. Creating a sophisticated and semi-casual look was an essential component to this garment. Process: I was inspired by a recent trend of asymmetrical front-to-back skirts, where the skirt is significantly shorter in the front than the back. I wanted to use this trend while creating something new and unique. The basic idea of the trend was used and I added my own touches to it for an exciting new look and style. I gathered images for inspiration of different variations of this trend from multiple locations, most from style-focused websites and blogs as well as a few print fashion magazines. Techniques: This dress was created through the draping technique on a dress form that was padded to equal the models measurements. Padding out the dress form was essential to get an accurate garment fit with minimal alterations post draping. The details of the garment were marked on the fabric, and once the fabric was removed from the form the fabric pieces were trued and transferred to paper to create my final patterns. A sample garment was fitted to the model and changes to the pattern were made. The fully lined final garment was then constructed and features a contrasting sash and bodice front. Materials: 100% Polyester Crepe, 100% Polyester Chiffon, 100% Acetate Plain Weave Lining, Polyester Zipper, 100% Polyester thread
