My dress form, Jefferson, has been longing to be used for oh, just a bit of time now. Wait, my dress form has a name? Indeed. The long hours at the sewing studio during college produced the name Jefferson and it has stuck ever since. It’s regal and would be ever-so-weird if the naked form in my apartment didn’t have a name. She is always there. Just like my tricky little snail, Herbert <end tangent>.
With some creative vigor in me lately, I decided to start designing a piece to wear to Lollapalooza this weekend. Here is a sneak peak of the draping, pattern making, construction process. And hold on to your hats, because the full preview of my new design is just a day a way. Meaning tomorrow. A She Wears post! Which I am sure you will check back for. Yea?
