Very cool, I like the pattern of the fabric, and the shape. I think it might look more slimming if the seam that is in the middle were not visible, or if it were placed on the side. But great job overall- I am starting to learn how to sew too, hope I can one day make a skirt as nice as yours!

Thanks I would do it in two seams but I wanted to cheveron the stripe which is only possible if you piece the fabric I got the stripe to line up all the way around it took a long time but was worth it

fashionfield, I dont think designing is the main thing about your designs but rather the implementing of your designs. from your last pics, it seems that your implementations lack that sharp crispness that makes your designs stand out. i think you also have some slight problem with say fabric/colour coordination. of course, i'm not sure if it was part of your design to begin with since your sketches rarely show the colour. i'm not being mean(at least, that wasn't my intention) but it kinda sucks a little to see interesting designs lost because of poor construction.

XING...what do you mean by "sharp crispness" ...are you refering to the ironing technique... or the lack of details in fashionfield's design?

"I dont think designing is the main thing about your designs but rather the implementing of your designs"
is that supposed to be like some yoda like statement?

if u mean that the designs emphasize too much on the creative aspect, that some of them cannot be constructed..please be more specific about it...
after all how can one take this sort of criticism constructively.. if you speak in riddles?!

honestly her sketches are quite interesting...well at least to me...
and yes i guess these new ones look more like fashion illustrations...but i'm sure that when she presents her collection she OBVIOUSLY makes the flats to support the real life construction of her designs.

sorry if i'm coming across as mean (well it wasn't my intention anyway), but u need to be more specific while criticizing a collection... who knows she might just try to take ur advice..and get a second meaning out of ur above mentioned comment!

just wondering if anyone here is from central saint martins(b.a fashion)...and if they are... could they please post of few of their designs (illustrations and the complete garment- if they can), so i can get an idea of what type of designers they are looking for...
i'm applying for this fall and i'm soooooooooooooooooooooooo nervous...i'll post my designs as soon as the collection book for my ss09 collection is made!

xx

^^ I'm not sure what goes towards a certain piece of garment, if sewing it a different way or ironing it more will help or even if the piece is constructable. the general comment that i was making was that fashionified's stuff looks great on paper but rather disappointing when they're actually made. I was suggesting that it would probably be better if he made notes or colour in his designs so that he/we get a better idea of how the piece would look like if he created in.

I have no idea how to explain the crisp sharpness because that's the best I can come up with to describe her designs when I'm looking at the drawings she made and it's one of the main features of her designs which I like so much. it's clean, it's fitted, there's great details where it should be and not too many other stuff to clutter the design but when it translates to real life, the clean/fitted nature of it isn't there anymore and the introduction of colour/texture that was previously unavailable from her drawings also shows up in her finished work. some of these added details that (for me) spoilt the whole look.

to be more specific, i refer to #766 .

the first drawing vs the first finished product:
the vest. in the drawing, the vest was clean, simple, well fitted. from her fashion illustration, i can roughly make out that it is supposed to be knitted but compared to the finished product. WHERE DID THE CABLES COME FROM??? WHERE DID THE OPEN WORK COME FROM??? there was no indication of it on her drawings. the vest also looks too big and sloppy on the model. on the same design, the shirt is now striped.

the second drawing vs the second finished product.
the outerwear was the part i liked most in the drawing. it was sharp and well fitted. there were interesting details around the sleeves and shoulders. the collar was also very impressive. compared to the finished product. the finished product lost the sleeve details. fit wise, the shoulder area became more bulky and lost it's sharpness. the collars are now floppy.

erm... do you roughly know what I mean now?
