This is three week project themed nature. We are supposed to choose an subject in the nature and examine its dissection. Then make a drawing and develop it into a project from the inspiration of the nature object. I chose the dragonfruit and made the elements into my dress. It is my first time making a dress like this.
Because of the limitation of time for this project, I did not finish up the hems or some adjusting details, though I have done most of the fittings. So it basically just shows the concept.
The dragon fruit drawing with marker pens. Also my first time using markers.
Smaller version smaplets of executing what the dress might come out like.
Trying pattern on muslin.
After fitting on the muslin sample, changed the measurement and took it onto the formal fabrics.
Dress part before assembling.
Pattern pieces including the shirt part.
I designed the top piece on dress stand first and then cut the muslin and fitted on myself before tracing down the pattern.
To show how the pleats work, there are pictures of me squating or sitting.:p
Detail in the front. Supposed to resemble the pattern of dragon fruit meat. French-knot embroiered all the seeds on two layers of light sheer off white fabric.
First and second try of fashion illustration.
