Behind the Seams : Kymberlin's Prom
In my second #showyourwork Prom Series, I share with you all Kymberlin's prom look. By now, you know how the story begins these stylish young ladies bring in inspiration pictures from Instagram and online. Well Kym had design inspiration overload lol. She was so excited about prom and had so many ideas for her prom dress. After a few design consultations we narrowed down to a couple of features she KNEW she couldn't live without. Now it was time to turn her vision into reality.
Making her custom pattern and muslin was pretty simple but essential to get the fit and design perfect. I didn't use any patterns for my prom dresses so I was able to use my pattern making skills which was cool.
Working with Kym was beyond a pleasure. I learned so much about myself as a designer and working on her dress was an opportunity to blend everything I have learned as a self taught designer together. I saw her design project as a comprehensive exam lol. And... getting her text message after prom was my "report card". She loved it!!!
