Transcript of Personal Project

Step 4: I have to make the first layer of the bottom part of the dress. Ideas: I want to design, create, and sew a dress.
I have chosen this topic because
I am very passionate about fashion and I like to channel my creativity, feelings, and time into it. A passion for fashion can cost a lot though so, in the past couple of years I have applied my love of fashion into a love of sewing. Sewing my own clothes gives me a sense of independence when I teach myself to make something, and pride and accomplishment when I am able to finish something. Now, not only do I love fashion and sewing, I also love drawing because to create my own clothes I have to design them first. I love that I am able to make my own clothes because I can truly express who I am through the way it looks, the textures and colors of the fabric I choose, and the technique I use to make it. My Topic: A Project About the Process of Designing and Sewing a Formal Gown Personal Project: Dress Making My Area of Interaction: The topic fits under the area of interaction of Human Ingenuity because I am creating something, something unique and of my own design. In Human Ingenuity is all about creating something from your imagination and applying that in a real life setting. I feel like that relates to my project because I am making the dress all by myself and I can use it in real life. Also, because the skills it takes to make it are skills that can be used in a job in the future. So Here's How I'm Going To Do This: Step 3: Make a bustier for the top part of my dress. Step 1: First, I need to create the pattern I'm going to use for my dress. Step 7: After I've completed step 6, I am going to have to attach the top and bottom halves. Step 6: In this step, I am going to carefully attach and wrap the chiffon onto the bustier top half. http://sweet-verbena.blogspot.com/2011/07/making-your-own-pattern-tutorial.html This website is a tutorial on on how to make your own patterns. http://luarrr.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-to-diy-black-chiffon-maxi-skirt.html This website has a step by step process as to how to make a maxi skirt that I will attach to the top. Step 5: After I make the skirt half I'm going to drape chiffon over it. This video teaches you how to drape fabrics correctly. Step 2: Now, I need to pick out the fabrics I'm going to use. For the top part I will use a aqua colored satin and aqua colored chiffon. For the bottom part I will use aqua colored jersey and aqua colored chiffon. Step 8: Once it's attached I am going to wrap chiffon around the seam so it does not look awful.
