Tailoring Processes Module, Second Year. This module was really interesting. It involved learning technical processes that are associated with tailoring and tailored garments. develop into initial ideas for design. I decided to focus my design work on menswear this time. I wanted to see if my ideas and researching could be pushed into a different direction. I also decided to use a different layout when designing. I liked using models to draw my designs on. Sampling encouraged my work and took it to the next level which I really liked. I learnt how to make lapels, collars, bound button holes, pockets and how to insert piping. I particularly loved the process of making pockets from bound button holes. This was useful when I looked at this along side new and contemporary tailoring, as this is very popular at the minute. I began to take the ideas of pockets further into Initial Ideas, Design and Final Line-up. I liked tailoring processes and think it will help me with further projects, especially design work if i want to add details like pockets. I now know how to do these and therefore will understand garments much more. I wish the project was ran at different point this year as my mind hasn't been as focused as I would of liked. Overall I learnt a lot of valuable techniques that I will definitely be using in the future.
