I produced a few sample garments using elements from my designs which i am hoping to use in my final piece, some were more successful than others but overall i was rather pleased.
I chose to add a beaded lace and sheer fabric at the bottom as decoration and to give a quirky aspect to the top.
At the back the top lowers in a V shape for a flattering shape. I also attempted a corset tie at the back for an east way to alter for the closest fitting. I am rather pleased with my result, However, if i use this aspect in my final piece i will ensure that i make the top more fitted at the top of the bust by using bigger darts.
I did a sample tryout of my own version of legwarmers. I chose to make rather baggy ones but to make them adjustable in height by using a bra strap instead of suspenders. I think that when i produce the legwarmers for my final piece i will make them slightly more fitted than i did for this sample.
