I made a garment!09:00:00
This time last year, I was in the middle of an exam year, for what seemed like the most important exams in my life as they enabled me to attend University. A huge part to some of my subjects last year was project work. I had to undergo a land-use project for geography as well as complete food journals for Home Economics. Despite the amount of times I have mentioned my high achievements in the subject of Home Economics, I failed to mention a practical project I did which was worth 20% of my overall grade.
As an elective I did Textiles. I am well aware that most schools decide to do social studies; however because my school was small, we were lucky enough to have a choice in the matter as plenty of help was available to us. A major part of this elective was the construction of our very own garments. This was something I was quite skeptical of doing as I am not the most precise person ever! I really wanted to complete the task and not have to change electives.
I asked for a bit of assistance from my aunt who is an art teacher who is a whiz on sewing machines unlike myself. If I didn't have her help there is no way I could have completed the project.
The theme of the project was to construct a garment which a fashionable 16-19 year old would wear and find in the shops. As a part of this project I researched colours and other elements of style until I found something I was happy with.
I completely forgot about the garment until I was at home the other day and saw it lying around.
So I decided that I would take a few photographs and show it off on my blog.
I really love how it turned out. The red maroon colour is one of my favourite colours and suits my skintone very well. :) The design of the top is also very unique and I am in love with the back and the pearls I put on it!
I would really love to know what you guys think.
I think the product is very good for the first piece of clothing I ever made.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
As always, I'll see you soon,
