Dont Miss Me Too Much

Sadly, my class has come to an end. My mood board is being perfected and when I finish I will be emailing my professor for feedback. Now, I know all the skills I need to get into FIT. Professor Cutting made it easy and clear on how to make everything perfect and neat. He taught me how to photoshop my background, shade and cut out my fashion figures, how to cut swatches and how to make everything the best I can.

When my portfolio is complete, It will look something like this:

 

 

 

But, don’t miss me too much, FIT. In the summer I will be taking a sewing class to create a denim jacket to add to my portfolio. I will be focusing on my portfolio this summer and hopefully, I will be accepted into FIT. 

I am a dream chaser and I will not let anything stop me from accomplishing my goal. I hope one day I’ll become a big brand designer for swimwear and will be able to thank FIT. I highly recommend classes at FIT because it made everything seem possible and taught me things that I had no idea about in the past. Being successful means you have to work hard at everything you do and don’t let any obstacles break you or stop you from completing your goal. What is your goal in life?

FIT for the Talented

We are currently learning how to make outfits using a denim, stripe pattern and a floral. As the designer, you have to be very specific and show where the body is and where the folds of the garnmet are.

The last 20 minutes of class, we went to the gallery to see the student’s mood board’s and outfits they made. The students are very talented, they make their croquis look alive.

Have you ever wondered how to make your drawings look more realistic? Shading is KEY!

Here is a look at the talented work of people who were accepted into FIT:

FIT Sewing Portfolio Tips

1. Are your hems straight and loose threads clipped? Neatness and strong basic skills are always highly valued!

2. Closures. Did you push yourself further than just an elastic waistband or tube dress? Have you challenged yourself by using buttons or zippers?

3. Does you garment fit a person or dress form well? It’s all about the fit at FIT! Avoid bumps, puckers and pull-lines.

4. Fabric choices are crucial! Avoid fabrics that show all mistakes, like satin, silk, chiffon, spandex, etc., unless you are fully confident in your ability to sew them.

5. Aprons, pajama pants and circle skirts are typically not considered competitive garments. Select creative garments with several construction pieces or with a tailored fit.

We hope these tips help you choose your best work!
