Detail of my text pattern and color
preparing facing pattern and cut out facing
the printing piece’s color is way too off(below), so I decided to use my facing fabric instead.
stiching all the strips
This is my first time doing the something from printing fabric which has my own designed pattern and texts on it. This Dress I called it “Don’t”, because of my “don’t” teacher Andrea. I had my first drape which I was really excited about. And you didn’t allow my do most of details that I wanted to do. You said ” No, don’t do it” And then I redrape another dress during the class. I scanned all the pattern, it was really hard to layout and reconnect all of them. After I drew out the pattern of the dress. I started to think what text I should put on. then I decided to use the “don’t” and also a white circle plus a slash to represent “don’t do it”. Although I am not happy at first, but I like the result and a this cute inspiration detail I got from you. When the fabric came, I am really disappionted about the colors. They are not what I imagined. So I decided to use my facing fabric to replace two panels for right side front and back. I cut then in same pattern, and drew all striaght lines with chalk. And sew all of them. At first I was afraid the lines are going to be too curvy. But it end up really nice. And also I cut the little tags and top stiches on one panel. And I like it and love process as well. The one you did’t allow me to do, I did it anyway, I didn’t wanted to change my design because I really love it. I did the facing as well. Hope you will like it.
And Thank you for the semester! love you!
