Although it's been about 7 weeks into the semester I'm finally posting about class. Beside PE and business class I'm taking historical costume class. and we make everything on a half scale dress form.
of course everything has to be historical correct such as fabric (with exception) and closure. we get to pick our time line, what they are doing, what time it is, female or male.
I picked the later tang dynasty. and there isn't much information on this time period so we (as in my processor and me) took the time and matched it as close as possible to the time in other area around the world. I also watch period drama cause that was the closet I could get to information beside photos of modernized outfit.
don't have any cut or pattern process but here is the second mock up i did. The first one's top didn't fit well.
