Abstract

Purpose: Through designing this garment, I wanted to challenge myself by advancing my sewing skills to create a garment that makes the wearer feel beautiful. Process: When I first started to design my garment, I did a lot of research on Pinterest for inspiration. Japanese fashion is a particular interest of mine and I was inspired by many of the up-and-coming street styles that are currently being reported on along with designs by Atsusi Nakshime. Going through many sketches, I finally decided on this garment which features a corset, which was a challenge to construct properly. Techniques: Draping was used to create this garment. From the draping, a pattern was made and, from the pattern, a sample was constructed. The sample was put on my model and final changes were made from the fitting to the paper pattern. Once this was done, I was able to cut my final fabric and carefully make my final garment. Contribution to Fashion: It contributes to fashion by revering the beauty of female deity. By making a good appearance, young women feel younger and confident. Materials: Polyester satin fabric, polyester sheer plain weave fabric, plain weave lining, zipper, polyester thread. This is one in a line of three garments; the entire line can be seen at the Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising spring fashion show, May 30, at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in Milo Smith Theater in McConnell Hall.
