Spring brings fun things. Stand out, don’t blend in. Here’s a twist on my Spring/Summer leggings made with comfortable fabrics like bamboo jersey, cotton and nylon. Mint green and coral are perfect colors for this season.
I am in control of the budget for the fabrics and notions. Here is a break down of all my costs.
Total cost $186
Batik Cotton 3 Prints (8 yards total)
Batik Cotton 3 yds $11.50yd
Batik Cotton 3 yds $11.25yd
White Linen 2 yds $12yd
Armani Brown Linen 1yd $16yd
Dami contributed the 100% polyester fabric
Thread 3 cones $1.25
Bias Tape 5yds $.40yd
Elastic 3yds $.50yd
I had to replace some fabrics because they were not working but I had an investor (my dad) but them for me so I would not go over budget. Today Liza gave me 50% of the cost of my fabric budget. Dami did not contribute anything.
Since I am not to fond of our groups photo shoot, I have decided that I will re-shoot all of my garments with a professional photographer. I want to have strong photos for my portfolio and to leave school with.
So I am expecting to re-shoot May 24 or May 25 at Laguna Beach and I will provided my own models, hair and make-up.
Liza’s jewelry will also be featured in this photo shoot as well.
The Photo Shoot was not what I expected. I did arrive late because I could not find the location.
When arriving to the shoot, the Photographer was not a professional and he did not know what he was doing. The one and only “professional” model canceled. So we had to little to nothing to work with.
Luckily, I saved the day and brought my two friends, Hale and Lilly to enjoy the experience with me. They fit the clothes and was able to be apart of the photo shoot.
I am a bit disappointed because not all of my garments were photographed due to difficulties with the fitting. The clothes fit prior to the shoot when I did my fitting with my family and friends.
I am going to reschedule another photo shoot later in the quarter, so I can have better photos for my portfolio.
