Todays toile review went really well, I have been shown how to improve my design, and I agree it will make it look a lot better, I am going to continue with the Wearing A Polyhedron (Pattern Magic) but I am going to spread it round into the back and exaggerate it in the sleeve. I also need to fix the neck line as it gapes when on the mannequin, although I have quite a lot of work to do, I am pleased with all the improvements that were suggested as this will all help with my technical development.
Today I was working with my third year, I was toiling one of his dresses making sure that all the patterns went together correctly, I am finding that working with my mentor is really improving my manufacture skills, I can look at a pattern and visualise how it will look once constructed, making manufacture a lot easier.
I found todays tutorial extremely helpful. We had a good look through all the work that I have done, and worked out what I should do to improve especially throughout my sketchbook
During the rest of the day I was working on the patterns for my sculptural sleeve, I found this quite challenging as there are so many pattern pieces it can all get a bit confusing, but I am looking forward to seeing the end result.
