Jean Jacket Style Pattern Project – Part 1

First Senior Year project

Seniors are to DRAFT the pattern of the Denim style jacket, which happens to be an ICON fashion piece

I have taken the time to DRAFT the BODICE of this jacket, while making small modifications. Look out for them!

Students are also encouraged to CHANGE IT UP!! Yet only if they feel confident enough to lean on their past experiences with patternmaking and use them to produce a more CREATIVE pattern. REMEMBER, you MUST REDRAW the design IF you are changing it significantly.

Here goes nothing……
ALSO!! Ms. Chavez made a booboo or 2!! So watch the vids FIRST, then apply what you see!
