    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 used a pattern I bought from Joann Fabrics, which is shown below. I didn’t bother making a mockup for the shorts, because of the fact that it is lounge wear and I’m using elastic for the waistband. They turned out pretty well! admin
