Fashion Technical workshop progress


Every Friday at university we have a fashion technical workshop in the machine room. This term we are currently learning how to make a standard tailored women’s wear jacket, then after take the knowledge we have learnt and make a tailored jacket to our own design. I thought I would share with you all my progress on this workshop. We are currently at the point of nearly finishing the jacket demonstration and all I have left to do is attach the lining to the jacket before constructing my own design.

The photos above are of my technical file where I have to show the process of making a tailored jacket, Pocket samples (jetted, jetted with flap, welt, slanted welt, patch, bluff), constructing the lining process and dart manipulation.

Photos of research into different trends for jackets so help me come up with a concept for my jacket design. I combined Country wear with Fetish- “Country Fetish”

Above are a few sketches of my ideas for my concept. I really want to use leather and tweed in my final jacket. However I need to source some soft leather as it would be easier to construct which I’m currently on the look for. However I managed to grab some good quality tweed from my fashion technician by chance- 4m for £2.50… ABSOLUTE BARGAIN! I think there was an instant regret as soon as I gave her the money…

My jacket and lining so far … excuse the creases!
I’m so excited to move onto my own designs- Will keep you posted!
