I've finally re-sketched and scanned my drawings of my senior thesis collection, which I have been developing since this summer. It's six looks, spring/summer, for girls ages 6-10. Inspired by vintage kitchens and aprons, there's a lot of florals, plaids, fun appliques, and hand
Today was my first fitting in real fabric for the collection! This is the look that will be photographed for our senior class lookbook. There's still some finishing touches to be added but I'm quite happy with how it turned out. The denim jacket created some issues but it looks wonderful now. Unfortunately, I had some problems teaching myself how to crochet so I didn't do that part myself but it turned out great, thanks to the handiwork of Hillary Livingston.
I will leave you with my current inspiration boards in my office. I put up new stuff over winter break and I'm finding them quite inspiring! I love these magnet boards from IKEA -- there's much easier to work with than your average cork board and pushpins.
