Garment Philosophy

I begin each garment design with a philosophy for that particular design. The philosophy is what the garment wants to be and what, if anything, are “nonnegotiable” elements and what can be tweaked if needed. For instance, proportional design is an overarching philosophy I’ve always applied in my garment designs, even before hearing Jill mention it in her class. As seen in Woodsong Camber (pre-class), the philosophy of this design is that it featured differing sized traveling cables dependent upon the size being knit. Or in Moonlit Kiss, I originally had sketched in highly detailed sleeves, but in development found the lace and cowl details were enough elements for one design so streamlined those sleeves down to a simple faux seam to match the body.

Air Bender MKAL Reveal

It’s Reveal Day!!! I’m beyond thrilled to finally show you the photos for Air Bender. The only problem? Cameramom did such an amazing job shooting the 3 different pattern options, I have too many to share! The first cull was what ones deserve photo editing? After a week I got the hundreds down to 60s. Then I forced myself to collage one image collection for each of the three patterns… with a few surprises mixed in.
