What was your inspiration?
Playing with concepts
What are you most proud of?
improving my drafting skills
the photo where its on the dress form makes it look funky, but its because I drafted and made this to fit me specifically- the dress form doesn't slope like a real ribcage, doesn't have breasts (this is cut to sit right against the under wire of my bra) and I have broad shoulders despite my smallish frame- you cannot adjust the shoulders on the dress form to reflect that...
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Like I always say TAKE YOUR TIME! If you find yourself getting frustrated, walk away and come back later. continuing to work while frustrated only seems to produce more mistakes!
