Homework from week three: Bring in a pair of your favorite pants, some pattern paper, and your sketchbook completed up to date.
The historical personality that I chose to be inspired by for my 20 sketches this week was Frida Kahlo. I chose Frida, for two reasons. One I know her story and two I am familiar with her personal style.
I created an inspiration collage.
And I created some sketches and technical drawings.
I wish I knew how to make patterns from my sketches, because I really like some of my designs. Next week's homework is to create three sketches for your final collection, pick a pattern to create for your garment for your final project, and pattern a pencil skirt and sew the muslin!!!
This class is not for the faint hearted and it will not (in my opinion) be a cakewalk for a newbie who doesn't put in the time or effort to learn on his/her own..this last part s just a bit of information for those who might want to take the class.
