Box pleats

20140321_132912

I totally fell in love with this Zebra print cotton and decided to make a little box pleat dress, the trick with box pleats is to get the pattern match exactly in-line or it throws off the whole effect. Also as it happens my over-locker has just arrived and I can’t wait to play with it.

Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.

I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.

EXPERIMENTAL ADORNMENT

DSC00199 DSC00197

After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette  I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.

Heavy Metal.

This particular piece was made during the final year of the FDA in Textiles and Fashion I studied, It was so much fun playing with ideas and pieces of fabric to create something to adorn the body, so I thought why not include it here.
