I'm so sorry everyone, for being so absent these days. I promise I've not forgotten about you all, but my only design class from March to May was pattern drafting (so no designing until my one pair of jeans for the final, which was designed for me, eh...haha), and now I'm in a class that takes up a LOT of my time.
Also, I've had a very intense July, filled with Self-Doubt and some sort of sad Self-Discovery. My first foray into the world of Romance, and after a month-and-a-half glimpse at a life not lived alone, we split. It's been very, very hard on me, and I've gone through a range of emotions that I had previously only experienced from outside observation. So, put that all together, and one class over a summer doing something I was born for is still a continual struggle.

However, that class is my last prerequisite before my Senior Design Classes come Fall, where I develop and create my graduate Senior Collection.

For this class, we have three projects, making three completely different outfits. Each will have pictures I intend to upload on here, and to get to one design, we do 50 sketches, so I will upload them, too.

So far, I've created the first project: 50 Sketches inspired by Shells, with a 60's feel. The resulting Swimsuit and accompanying illustration will be coming VERY soon, like maybe I'll upload the Illustration today?

Next is a Ballet Costume Tutu inspired by swirling Chocolate for one of the character dances in the Nutcracker, under the theme of "Theatricality". I only got about 30 sketches done for that one, but I intend to go back in and create more to flesh out the idea. When that garment is done, pictures and an illustration will be uploaded of it.

I'm about to begin the final project, where I'm going to use a 20's feel and create an evening coat (and dress?) that will undoubtedly incorporate another theme or two for the styling...maybe Indian architectural embellishment, or Crop Circles as a pattern base. Either that, or look at the 1950's, since occasional cocktail dressing is a big inspiration for my Senior Collection.

Also, I designed some outfits for a friend's girlfriend's 21st Birthday, which she asked be based off of the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine". Unfortunately, I have no way of getting them to her, and I fear it's now too late for her to use them, but I'll upload the ones I like from that on here for you, too, soon.

SO that's all the news from me, pretty much. I'm also doing my Senior Collection, so I may upload research, may not. We'll have to see. Thanks for sticking with me, guys!!!
