"Life of a fashion design student" could also be the title of this blogpost. Yesterday I went in to uni around 11, stitched up a dummy arm (yes, you have to have an arm when you're gonna drape a shirt and NO it's neither easy or fun) and at 2 pm started a draping class we had missed due to the teacher being sick.
Draping is however quite fun, I prefer it a thousand times over pattern making, which is very dry and flat. Draping a fabric on the form makes it so much more understandable. But it is also not easy and a lot of math goes in to it. Today we started draping the shirt which we're supposed to finish next week and then start our own design to finish within two days. Stressful? Ya.
We draped the yoke, the gatherings, the cuff and pleats.
