Labelling and pinning all of my many triangles
When I was creating my toile I was able to write on each piece to tell me where it connects and what it connects to, all very vital information when you have over 100 different triangles which all have there own place so that the piece works and most importantly fits together! But I couldn't write over my final piece, so I had to use tape, I spent most of the day writing on tape and sticking it to each corner on each triangle and labelling the name of each triangle, which was very time-consuming. After I had labelled each triangle I pinned them together, I shall sew them together tomorrow, so that each pyramid is ready for Wednesday.
Construction of triangles
This morning I was stitching all of my triangles together, after stitching I am overlocking as it gives a nice finish to each of the seams. I am really pleased as I got all pyramids stitched together and I pinned the remaining pieces together, I really like how it is looking with my final fabric.
I really enjoyed today as I got to see one of my mentor's outfits come together, we were adding the finishing touches, it has been really interesting helping throughout the process of construction of his work, and seeing how much work goes into the final collection.
Construction of final shirt
Today I was sat at the sewing machine for most of the day, just sewing away. I got a lot done and I have pretty much finished my shirt, a few things I want to redo to make sure that it is constructed to the best of my abilities.
Finishing construction of my final shirt
Today I was finishing the construction of my final shirt, I have almost finished all i have left to do is attach the snap poppers down the front, but for now it is finished. I am really happy with the way that it looked, the colour and the fabric helps reflect a classic shirt but the actually shirt is mutated version of the classic, which i think goes well together.
Last Day Of Creative Cut
Today we had to present out creative cut work, I had to present my moodboard, line up (front and back views) and final piece, it went well and I am really pleased with the comments that I received. One of the pieces of advice offered is that I focus on my final line ups and make them more clear with more focus, as well as changing their trousers so that they aren't the same.
