Week 10: Setup/Sketch

Man, I really wanted to post this earlier, because I had the main idea sketch, sorta?  But I hadn’t made my fabric yet (the trick this week is that the contestants designed a fabric pattern, got it digitally printed and then used it in their piece) and didn’t want to commit without seeing it. So!

Being without the time or money to have fabric printed, I pulled out my screenprint paints and made my own pattern by hand. Here’s some process pictures:

And it will work with the basic idea of my sketch, so woo!

Since the point is sort of the fabric and working with pattern, I wanted something that could be revealed and hidden with ruffles and/or pleats.  So a basic, large pattern.

Okay, to sewing.
