these necklaces are so gorgeous, i couldn't resist posting! my favorite one [above] has already been sold :( probably a good thing because otherwise i would be sitting here arguing with myself over whether or not to purchase it... although the ones below are also beautifully unique and worthy of the same argument... sigh.

check out the rest at muntedkowhai's etsy shop.

Thesis collection: Looks 1-4

Today I presented my senior thesis collection for our midterm reviews. This is just 4 of the 6 final looks [I still have several weeks left to get the rest done!]. There are revisions to be made [mostly on the appliques/hand embroideries and the triangle-inset skirt] but I'm quite happy with how it's coming along!

Below I have included images from recent fittings to show off the tank top from the second look, the fit of the sleeves in the third look [note: there are pockets in the side seams on the dress], and the neckline on the fourth look. The skirt on the last look is going to be taken up an inch so it falls at knee-length instead of below it. Again, credit for the beautiful crochet goes to Hillary Livingston, who saved me from a big tangle of knots!

[It can be very difficult to get our models to stand still for a photo after spending a couple of hours trying on everybody's garments!]
