Abstract

The goal of this design was to create a sense of shock value through the textiles and silhouette. Teal has been forecasted as being a major textile theme this season in the apparel industry and I wanted to incorporate it in this rebellious design. The full tulle skirt was used to create volume and to integrate the sheer trend of 2014. Process: Extensive fabric and silhouette trend research was conducted to during the conception of this design. Teal satin was chosen as the primary color/textile to add a shocking pop. The short princess seam dress under the full sheer tulle skirt creates an extreme juxtaposition between the texture and sheet of the textiles and the silhouettes of each. Techniques: Draping was used to create this garment. Draping is covering the body in graceful folds to adorn the body for the correct fit. From the draping, a pattern was made and, from the pattern, a sample was made to fit on my model. From the fitting, changes to the pattern was made and the final garment was started. Princess seams were utilized in the dress to create a form fitting shape and to further flatter the wearer’s body. The tulle skirt was more challenging in construction. The many yards of tulle were tamed, pleated, and basted in place prior to it being sewn into the waistband. Materials: 100-percent polyester black tulle, teal crepe satin, polyester lining, two invisible zippers, thread.
