What a day for a model fitting! Today we had our protos due, and time to try them on the ladies!
A Proto: Is basically the drape, or first draft, of your garment. We had the choice of creating these in yard goods that we bought from a fabric store, or creating them out of our actual fabric.
In my case the jacket in my first look is the actual jacket, minus the closure. The dress beneath the jacket is a proto but is going to be knit out of my mohair! In my second look… the skirt is going to be as shown, but dyed to match my color story and with a different waste band. Her top is not going to be as shown either… it will be a hand knit tank top with a shawl (as shown but bigger)!
