it looks kinda like the sketch 🙂 (see below)

they could be sisters…sarah’s, mine and natalia’s spring halters

I am making the chartreuse halter for my class. that is the one that was selected by my instructor and the class.

here are my VERY rough sketches for my halter top design for my pattern drafting class. it is spring/summer junior (but we are allowed to design for a sophisticated junior…whew!!)

I was very inspired by the creative process behind Alber Elbaz’s (Lanvin) Lily dress…

…and vintage aprons

Full croquis, flats and swatches to come…we’ll see next week which one I’ll end up making.

ok here are my final designs. I had to do three but did four and that is why there aren’t flats on the last croquis. These are NOT illustrations..they are quick croquis with flats. so they’re not fully rendered. I present tomorrowso we’ll see which one I end up making. I like all 3 but I think that the strongest one from a design perspective and getting it right in flat pattern is the chartreuse one. I also have alternate fabrics for that one…a cotton silk voile in nude and black. we were supposed to stay with spring colors, but nude with black accents for evening is in this spring. I hope I can use them, they look amaaaaazing together. 🙂

  2. Thanks! I’m first year fashion too 🙂 I would say the most important thing is to always look at what is going on in the design world…look at all of the fashion week shows, go to museums, art exhibits, EVERYTHING…just get out there and be inspired. oh, and save tearsheets of everything you like 🙂
