Final idea chosen, it was time to move on to the making. This happened in four main stages;
1.) Drawing out a paper template and experimenting with shapes; On the first template the shoulders were too wide and it was also decided that a collar around the neck area needed to be added in order to add support for the detail that would be added on.
2.) Cutting onto calico; once the pattern had been cut alterations were still needed because the final shape hadn’t yet been decided.
3.) Cutting out of plastic; The start of the final piece, the pvc was triple layered in order to provide enough support
4.) Adding the detail on top; Cutting of the squares and the stitched detail all came together along with net to create the final piece.
