Today I had life drawing and a lecture on Sustainability in Fashion, to find out more please read my previous and next post.
Today's technical session was beginning the manufacture of the yoke skirt hat u pattern cut last week. I have now constructed the skirt, inserted the channel zip and have begun inserting the facing of the yoke. I have never sewn a yoke before, so I have found the sessions very beneficial in improving my technical skills. Next time I create a yoke I will explore a different edge, maybe one with a wave pattern.
In the workshop session I did some more experimentation for my final 3D outcome, I really like the way that this turned out as all the colours work well together and I feel that it is beginning to tie all my research together. Now that everything is beginning to come together I am feeling a lot happier about the deadline next week.
Technical Session- Skirt Manufacture
I am really pleased that I finished my skirt today as it means that I can complete one more section of my technical file for hand in next Friday. My technical file is coming along nicely, and I am on track for next week, it is up to date which has helped me to not stress out too much as it is one less task that I must work on now.
Today we had the assessment briefing it was so helpful as it gave me a clear indication of what is expected of me ready for hand in. As this is our first unit it has been quite daunting to think about the deadline day as we have never had a university one before, but after today I feel a lot happier about it, I have had all my questions answered, I can now start work on my portfolio now we know what we need for it. We were also told how the marking works, I found this very useful as I now understand how the marks are given out.
With exactly one week till the deadline I have started construction on my final 3D outcome, this feels like a big relief as it means that I am one more step closer to finishing all my work for hand in.
We also had a guest lecture today which I will talk about in a post coming out this weekend.
Hello, Eleanor here, I am currently at Norwich University of the Arts studying Fashion, please join me along my adventure.
