Abstract

Purpose: This garment was created to convey a bold personality through vibrant and beautiful colors. The colors are incorporated via geometric blocks for a unique and modernized style. Process: My inspiration is based on the color scheme of the design. Sharp differences in the colors for a high contrasting, clean look in the bodice and pant. The design lines of the bodice were chosen to give it more of an edgy look, my take on the punk-rock look. I went with a long shirt that is loose fitting, with longer sides to give it a geometric half moon shape. The pants have a classic cut with a modern two-toned accent. Techniques: The bodice was created via draping, which is forming fabric over a mannequin or live model and manipulating it, creating each piece of clothing separately. While draping, it was essential that I kept the silhouette loose to get achieve the flowing look I was trying to achieve. The pants were flat-patterned using the model’s measurements. On both the bodice and pants the color blocks were precisely measured and drawn from the draping and flat pattern, and separate patterns were made. Using the patterns I constructed samples and fit them. From the fitting the pattern was altered and the final garments then made. Materials: 100 percent Cotton, 100 percent Spandex, thread, elastic.
