Hand sewn cheongsam, 2020
Due to the move to virtual learning in March 2020, my Pattern Making for the Theater class swapped real-life models for Barbie dolls. Using our knowledge of measuring, drafting, and sewing, my classmates and I made dresses of our choice as our final project. Here my Barbie is wearing a cheongsam made with brocade and with frog closures to close the dress from the right side seam to the collar. One of the most challenging parts of this project was converting all our garment measurement instructions to a doll's scale!
