My theme for my garment was transportation. When I arrived in Chinatown the first thing I noticed were the many food vendors and Chinese restauraunts so I got to thinking, “what about the transportation of food?” So for my garment I chose the unconventional material of Chinese take out boxes. From this I constructed a skirt. For the top, I continued the food theme and made a fortune cookie top (a dessert often associated with Chinese take out).
Initial pattern for top.
