Abstract

Purpose: I chose to create this garment to satisfy my interests and as a form of self-expression. The look of my garments is about crisp clean lines, slim silhouettes, and a jolt of unexpected color and pattern. I wanted to create a garment that would portray myself as well as my interests. Inspiration for my garment came from pop culture, music, art, shoes, and current trends. I used earth tones and wooden buttons to display my love and appreciation for the outdoors and the natural world. Process: Throughout the design development phase, I researched streetwear trends as well as men’s sportswear trends. I wanted to design garments that could be worn comfortably and casual while still giving the appearance of a clean, together look. This led me to use crisp, clean lines, accompanied with a European silhouette. Techniques: To begin my garments, I first drew flat sketches of my conceptualization. I then took measurements of my model and began the tedious task of creating the patterns. At the drafting table, I began flat patterning the individual pattern pieces. After completion of all of my pattern pieces, I sewed together a sample. From here, I fitted the sample to my model, made alterations to my patterns, trued all of the lines, and began to create my final garment. After many hard hours of sewing, pressing, and top stitching all of my full-felled seams, I arrived at the finish line with my garments pristine. Materials: Jeans: 11 ounce 99 percent cotton 1 percent spandex twill weave denim, 7 inch zipper, 100 percent polyester coat and outdoor thread, metal button, jean rivets. Shirt: 100 percent cotton black, red, and tan checkered homespun plain weave, wooden buttons, plastic cuff buttons, fusible interfacing.
