Description

With the contemporary methods of fashion construction only effectively using 85 percent of fabric in a garment, 15 percent of the total fabric is left on the cutting room floor (Cooklin, 1979). In this design possible solution for eliminating negative space in the tessellation practice was investigated. My experimental process was to eliminate fabric waste by using curved motif while keeping the more traditional appearance and flattering the curvy, feminine silhouette.
