Busy day today, spent most of it working on my sketchbook. I’ve got everything blu-tacked and made annotations in pencil at the moment but am happy with the layout so far so will start sticking things in properly. I’ve also discussed my FMP proposal with Tracey further, we have to have a mentor within the fashion industry as it has to be a live, industry linked project. This basically means that I need to get contacting some childrenswear and womenswear companies that I would potentially like to work for. Ideally I need to find someone who would be willing to be my mentor; they don’t need to do a great deal, I just need to keep in occasional contact with them throughout the course of my FMP to get some professional feedback.
My outfit today was channelling my inner rock chick. I’ve been looking for a high-waisted pencil skirt for ages but haven’t managed to find one that I really like (that I could afford at the moment anyway!). I also always have difficulty buying high-waisted stuff as my waist is so small, so I made my own. I really should make more stuff for myself, I love doing it, just wish I had more time. But it all adds to my pattern cutting and manufacture experience so I’m going to do it more often. This only took me a couple of hours anyway and that included making the pattern:
A few silly shots for a bit of fun!
