The LEIELA process

The stage of fashion design are:
Inspiration to sketch to fabric to pattern to toile to amen
dments to pattern to first fit and then garment completion (well this is a very short process!)

Over the next few posts I thought I would show you the process for my "Leiela Lady Accolade" entry.

I wont be showing you the completed garment till the end, so lets skip the inspiration stage and move to the pattern stage...

This is "draping"method and I do quite a lot of my work like this.
I first start with paper and fitting it to the manequin. I then cut the shape of the bodice and transfer this to a flat pattern.

Next stage... toile!

much love xx
