FIT Portfolio

Hey guys, its been quite a while hasn't it? Almost a year I'm afraid to admit. Where has the time gone? I graduated college almost a year ago and since then I've had a lot of time to think about what the next step is for me. Post-college is probably the awkwardest stage of life, right up there with your pre-teens. You're not in school anymore, and even though you have a job and bills, you still don't feel like an adult. My solution? Going back to school. The last year off has been good for me, but I've decided to apply to the Fashion Institute of Technology and see what comes my way. Above are a few designs from the portfolio I submitted. As you can see, I've grown a penchant for polka-dots, yellow accents, and leather  panels. 

Check out the rest of my portfolio on my pin board on Pinterest: [HERE]
I'd have to say the hardest part of the application was the garment sewing test. Having only sewn mostly plushies before, its quite different trying to make something that has an actual purpose and can be worn. I decided to make a pair of high-waisted shorts with a scalloped hem. Its also got pockets and an invisible side zipper. Not bad for my first pair of pants!
