After a bit of fiddling and staring into space I realised I was going to have to drape to figure out the pattern for Chase’s design. Total woe. So let me first throw down my plot for the low brow piece.
I went with the wrap dress from my sketches, as it fits better with the fabrics I have at and and I’m thinking it’s a better derivative of the high-end design. The sash for the waist is going to go around once before tying, for security and waist emphasis.
I looked around for a tree stand to put my dummy in, but it’s the wrong damn season. Nonetheless, I rigged it (jamming it into the corner of a box of heavy things with my slippers, okay?) and draped out the pattern for Chase’s design. And yes, there will be some sort of undergarment.
As this is a two day challenge I’m figuring a 20-hour time limit? The designers got one day with the high end and one day with both pieces, so my approach of working on both simultaneously isn’t too far off.
