Just came into studio, to experiment with the floaties – i had some spares so i have taped them up (layers and layers of tape) so they start to form one shape rather than sitting in their pockets as two shapes…
This is to ensure, that once in their pockets on the garment, when you touch them, they will be one air compartment rather than two wiggling around in their homes…
Then – another problem solving decision made from sample stage… When the fabric stretches, the colours from the floatie sheen through because when stretched, the fabric becomes sheer!
So in order to help this from happening – i have decided to spray paint them (including the blowholes) all black!
So right now its drying… i will go double check that its dry and investigate….
So obviously, tonight i just made do with a rough job just to see what the result would be like – will be doing a proper job on the real floaties for the final piece.
So hopefully by the end of tomorrow, i will have:
1) all floaties wrapped up properly and sprayed and left out to dry
2) all binding unpicked and new binding sewn
3) patterns on card ready for thursday morning
4) if the floaties are dried by the afternoon/night – start handsewing
WHICH ON TOP OF ALL THAT – finish drawing for fashion assessment for wednesday!!!
