Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of creating this garment was to execute my interpretation of the 80’s. Process: I was inspired by my Moms senior photo. She was wearing a light pink jumpsuit, white pumps and big 80’s hair. My love of 80’s music and her image I wanted to eat, sleep and live in the 80’s. I continued to look at old yearbooks of my mom from that era. I drew further inspiration from watching quintessential 80’s movies; Valley Girl, Blade Runner, The Breakfast Club, The Big Chill and The Goonies to name a few. The focuses of the garments are the bright colors and crazy black and white prints that were most popular. Techniques: I created this garment through the draping technique. Draping tape was applied to the body form as a guide to achieve the desired lines of the final garment. Pieces of fabric were pinned and manipulated onto the body form and once pinned I marked the key points on the draping. Truing the lines once the pieces were off the dress form was essential in the process and a pattern was then made from the draping. A sample was made to fit on the model and many changes were completed in order to achieve proper fit of the garment. Once the changes were made they were transferred to my pattern pieces and a final dress was created. Materials: 82% Nylon 18% spandex Mesh, 100% Cotton, 100% polyester lining, Bleach, Fabric paint, Invisible zipper and thread
