    Senior Project

    As a theatre major, during my senior year I have to come up with a project that will reflect my knowledge and skills that I have attained over the years spent at college. I decided to design a theoretical clothing line, three men’s outfits and three women’s, and ended up making one. The outfits were designed with specific minorities in mind. I made a black satin dress with pearl overlay fabric flatlined to the top pieces. The outcome matches the design pretty well, as my actual grade reflected. The idea behind the design was to create a dress for a plus-sized business woman, who is Autistic and runs her own…

    Vintage style Overalls

    I recently finished working on a pair of vintage overalls for my father. He has been looking for a pair of overalls for a long while, and couldn’t find anything he liked. So, I offered to make him some. The general design is based off a pair I own. Though his overalls are significantly different than mine, as they are fleece lined and the construction is different. Below are some photos of my dad in his new outfit.

    Completed: Mens formal button up shirt

    This shirt took me a couple days long then I expected, but it was worth the time! I made it to fit myself, and it fits perfectly. I had run out of muslin, and so was not able to make a mock up. I was concerned I would get to the end and it wouldn’t fit as well as I had hoped. I did alter the patterns slightly and check regularly to avoid this problem. Considering this was my first time making a formal shirt, I consider this a success! I used the pattern below (choosing the classic fit) and watched the video linked underneath to help guide me through…

    The Golden Touch

            How was I supposed to know the Greek Gods are real? I wasn’t exactly taught that in school, but nonetheless I get lost in the woods and wind up in a God’s vineyard. While I was marching through the vineyard trying to find my way to the nearest road, two women made of vines escort, or rather drag, me to the main villa. I’m thrown down onto marble tile in front of a lounge chair with a large man, a woman and man draped on top of him. His purple smoking jacket showing basically all of his chest and stomach, though his grandiose beard actually blocking…

    Completed: Warlock

    I finished coloring the latest set of drawings. One of my favorite colors to work with is purple, so this was quite a bit of fun.

    Fantasy collection: Warlock

    This set of drawings is also fits into the fantasy genre. This outfit was specifically inspired by a Critical Role character named Gilmore. I have some notes for color scribbled next to each design. The last image is of the character, Gilmore.

    Fantasy pirate

    Hey, y’all, I finally finished coloring in the fantasy inspired pieces. As is evident, I used watercolor. That is the medium I am most comfortable in. The color of the undershirt got darker on the second half. I’m quite happy with how the robe/coat turned out. The color changes from lighter on top to darker towards the bottom, it goes from light blue to violet.

    Completed: Monarch

    I finally put color to the sketch. After transferring the outline onto Bristol Board, I used watercolor to get the shades I wanted. I wanted the gown to have some areas look more transparent, so I decided watercolor was the way to go. I also used a thin-tipped sharpie to outline the ruffle of the skirt. Since I was specifically inspired by the monarch butterfly, I used that species’ typical colors. You can see the sketch to watercolor transformation below:
