Pattern cutting on the mannequin workshop
Today's session was really interesting as I have never created my own blocks from a mannequin before, it was quite fiddly, but it was quite a simple process if you just followed the instructions. I need to convert the calico to paper by next week, and make it into a top, ready for the next stage.
Creative Pattern Cutting Workshop
I found today's session quite difficult, but I am pleased to have finished with a complete pattern, by the next session I will have completed the sample in calico. I attempted the bamboo shoot pattern from the pattern magic book as I am really pleased with the end result, I am going to see if I can incorporate it into my design work.
Technical Pattern Cutting Workshop- The Shirt
This afternoon was very productive as I finished all of my patterns and I am ready to focus on the cuff and placket next week. I really enjoyed learning how to pattern cut a shirt and I look forward to seeing the finished result.
Today's lecture was really interesting and I am currently writing a post all about it which will be up over the next few days.
I found todays tutorial very beneficial as it has helped me to refine my ideas for my editorial piece. I have decided to discuss fur and the arguments for and against. I have gained a better understanding of how I should lay it out so that it is more interesting to read, and I was given lots of pointers that I hadn't thought about, which has really helped me. I have done lots of research and planning and I can now begin to write my piece, ready for my next tutorial in a few weeks. I will continue to do more research as I go along about current issues, but I will also explore the history of fur and how it got so popular.
