From Start to Finish

Sooo, before I put up pictures from the photoshoot I did with my garment, I wanted to show you the progression of creating my garment from start to finish.


I started drafting my garment right when I got back from my trip to New York around October 5.

Our product was due on Oct. 31, so it took me about 3 weeks to finish.


I was in the FIDM annex for hours tweaking slopers, figuring how in the world am I going to transform my design into reality. I actually did learn from my teachers from my apparel process classes, Thank you Mrs. Montgomery & Mr. Verreos! Surprisingly, all this came naturally to me, which was amazing and very beneficial.

I cut patterns and used trial and error to help guide me to where I wanted to go with my garment.

Here’s pictures that shows my process/progress…

I’ve already figured out my patterns and cut them out of muslin, basestitch one side of the garment.

Draping in the dress form to see if the pattern that I made worked…

Marking some side details that I wanted for my garment

With getting pretty much the basics, I fixed my patterns/unstitched some parts & started to tweak them.

Once I tweaked the patterns and think they were pretty close to what I was getting at, I went straight to my official fabrics, cut them out and started sewing.

Sewed my weave section…

So here’s my finished product… I practically finished my product with a size 8, but had to downgrade it to a size 4/6 one week before the product was due because the denim people finally told us what the actual size was going to be. (Which kind of freaked me out for a bit, but I overcame that obstacle)

You can tell its more of a fitted garment.

To make this product, I didn’t want to deal with using the industrial sewing machines at school, so I pretty much used my handy dandy home sewing machine. You should own a home sewing machine if you don’t have one, especially if you’re in some kind of fashion major.

This was a simple post. I just wanted to show some pictures from how I started to the finish product. I kind of missed some steps since I was too in the zone that I didn’t have time/felt like stopping to take a picture of what I was doing.


Here’s my post of my 1st’s photoshoot… Check it! (:
