Abstract

Purpose: My goal was to create a garment that was edgy with a bit of class. The target market for this design is a woman in her late 20s who wants to feel dominant on a night out. The garment combines black leather and snake-skin materials to make a women feel and look sexy and sleek. Process: Through research, I gained my inspiration for this garment. Exploration was directed through reviewing the history of fashion, todays’ latest trends, Pinterest, and various apparel design websites. I especially drew inspiration from 1950s-1970s when greasers, rockers, and bikers incorporated leather with their attire. I wanted to bring back a little bit of rocker style into my line with a sense of today’s fashion trends. The form fitting style of the garment was drawn upon a California style. Techniques: I created my garments through the draping technique using a size 10 dress 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 nine pattern pieces. For the final garment the lining and exterior were constructed separately and attached at the upper edges. Materials: 100 percent jersey knit, 100 percent polyester pleather, 100 percent acetate plain weave lining, thread, zipper.
