Final Project for Knits – Group Knit Collection

This is a GROUP project. But much of it is worked individually. So don't panic

There are progress check-points noted on the schedule that you must meet.  They are separate homework grades.

This project is meant to impart a greater understanding of the design and production process as practiced in the knit industry.  You will learn not only how to do design, source, and develop a basic knit group, but you will also (to some degree) experience how to do these as a group, the common industry practice.

Requirements for the GROUP:

  • An inspriration board for the line (homework grade)
  • A line sheet for all garments

Requirements for you INDIVIDUALLY:

  • 20 sketches of ensembles for the line (each - individual homework grade)
  • a complete paper pattern for your assigned/chosen ensemble - using the pattern guidelines (neatness REALLY counts) - this is turned in earlier than the rest, but is still part of the project grade.
  • A test muslin for your assigned/chosen ensemble using the muslin guidelines
  • The completed sample garment(s) for your assigned/chosen ensemble in appropriate fashion fabric using the sample garment guidelines - this will be turned in early with the final pattern.
  • A direction card for each of your DESIGN patterns
  • A spec pack for each of your garments in your ensemble
  • A portfolio quality illustration (full layout) for the entire line. Each of you makes a complete illustration so that you will have it for your portfolios.
