Sorry its been awhile since my last blog update! Ive been very busy with finishing my toiles for the Design Application and Process unit in my course.

The last toile I was able to work on, was for a high waist denim jeans. I started off by focusing on the basic shape of the jeans before including a waist band. For this unit project I am designing a sportswear inspired outfit, so therefore I wanted the jeans to be loose and baggy for better movement and comfort.

To provide additional comfort for the wearer, I decided to create an elasticated high waist band. While constructing the pattern pieces, I had to consider the waist of the body and kept in mind that you don’t only add on, but rather bring in the shape. I also had to think about how much fabric is going to stretch. I got the idea for this particular finishing from one of my own shorts, which I bought at a clothes market in Singapore 2 years ago. For an additional design feature for the waist, I plan to add an open cut on the side of the waist.

Above, are some images of my toiles,finishing samples and design development process.
