Last Monday, I officially started back at university, and I am now in my final year (ahh!) of my Fashion Knitwear degree. I can’t believe it has finally come around. I somehow thought I’d feel a bit more grown-up or something?! Ha, I am learning that you never truly ‘grow up.’
So this week has been spent just getting back into the swing of things, with a mini set of workshops focused on form. I have never actually worked properly on the mannequin from scratch before, having only done flat pattern cutting, but this was a wonderful opportunity to just get really creative and experiment with a variety of forms on the body.
Since you guys must be remotely interested in knit (you are reading my blog, after all!) I thought you’d like to see what my experiments with knitted fabric have come up with. My particular favourite was the piece above, but below are a few ideas I thought had potential too. These ideas won’t necessarily become a paper pattern to create a garment from, but will be used as inspiration for our next garment project.
I’d love to know which one is your favourite, so please share with me in the comments section below!
