Half-toiled


I had an assessment yesterday where I had to present three toiled looks. Toiles are like practice garments where you make up your look in cheaper fabric (that is, unless you're using neoprene) to test the fit of your patterns. I'm pretty happy with how my looks are going, I think the shapes are looking good. The panel I presented to had LOTS of comments and suggestions, which is a bit annoying sometimes but I guess I have a lot of work to do now!



Coloured illustrations of the three looks:

After the last assessment, I rushed home to pack my bags and fly to Paris that afternoon! Yesterday was a lot less fun as we have to pretty much get straight back to work, but I did spend the whole day on the couch watching Gilmore Girls so I enjoyed that.

How cool to see your work. Suggestions are always interesting things. I feel like one out of ten is good! But everyone has about...30 of them.

I just found your blog on IFB, I'm so excited to read all about your creative process on your collection. Everything looks beautiful now, but I'm sure the final product will be absolutely spectacular.
