Abstract

Purpose: I created this garment to be a piece that could be used for a variety of occasions. It can be worn for a night out on the town, or be worn with a jacket or sweater for an afternoon or daytime event. Process: A lot of my inspiration during the initial design process came from browsing spring fashion lines, and summer and spring dresses. I was inspired by garments that were loose and flowing, and decided to juxtapose a flowing bodice with a tight fitting skirt. I was also drawn to metallic fabric and details paired with softer fabrics, and after being inspired by the popular open and low backs of this season, I decided to use metallic fabric to create straps across the open back of the dress as a design element and to add structure. Techniques: The dress was created through draping, which is done by smoothing and manipulating the fabric on a dress form to create a design. I then created a pattern from the draped pieces, which were used to create a sample and the final garment. The back was draped low, and crossing metallic straps were added as a closure and to add visual interest. Materials: 97 percent Polyester, 3 percent Spandex Knit Fabric, 100 percent Polyester Lamé Woven Fabric, Elastic, and Thread.
