FC: Project Convergence 2012 | with Susan Lazear

2: Do you want the challenge of creating in the Project Runway mode? Working with handwoven or other fabrics, students will plan, design, and draft patterns for simple yet unique one-of-a-kind garments incorporating commercial fabric and/or trim. Participants may use provided software, hand-draft their style, or base it on an ethnic costume. Considerations of hand, drape, combining textiles and embellishments, choosing appropriate styles, etc., will be discussed. Garments will be constructed and a critique will allow all participants to learn collaboratively. A field trip to Mood Fabrics will allow students to find coordinating fabrics and trims.

4: We began by draping our fabrics on a dress form. That evening we took our measurements and sketched our garment ideas.
