Abstract

Title: Sky’s the Limit Purpose: I was desired to create a garment that combined other colors to add value. The target market for this design is a woman in her late 20’s who is ready for a night out on the town. The garment combines pastel and bright colors to show of a woman’s curves, assets and her fun flirty personality. Process: Research was conducted through reviewing Pinterest. Details of images were used and incorporated into my garment. I drew inspiration for bright colors from the recent movie The Hunger Games along with Australian boutiques that also featured pastels with the bright colors. The form fitting style of the garment was drawn upon Australian designs. Techniques: I created my dress through the draping technique using a size 14 body form. After draping the pieces they were trued and pattern pieces were made. A simple sheet from the Goodwill was used to create a sample that was fit to my model. Modifications from the fitting sample were made to the paper pattern, which was made up of eight pattern pieces. For the final garment the lining and exterior were constructed separately with boning on the bodice to add structural support. Materials: 100% cotton lining, 100% exterior, 100% polyester sheer fabric.
