Dress Project
  • You will design and create a CREATIVE stretch knit Dress. As long as it covers the torso, we shall consider it a dress.
    • It must be stretch knit fabric
    • It must start with the slopers from the Cole book.
    • It must be sufficiently difficult in design and construction (consult with the instructor)
    • It must be completed in appropriate knit fabric
    • You must explore a different set of techniques than you did with the T-shirt (a different look).
    • It is preferred that you try a different weight or stretch ratio of knit fabric as well.
  • Choices:
    • Interesting shapes
    • Advanced patternmaking
    • Technical construction
    • You may work in any misses, juniors, or women's size you like.
  • Submit:
    • A complete paper pattern for the design using the pattern guidelines (neatness REALLY counts) - 40% of grade
    • A test muslin using the muslin guidelines - 10% of grade
    • The completed sample garment in appropriate fashion fabric using the sample garment guidelines - 45% of grade
    • A direction card for the pattern - 5% of grade
