Ghetto For Me. Ghetto For You. Ghetto. One. Two. Three.

DRESS COUNTDOWN: 15 DAYS

OFFICIAL CLOSING COUNTDOWN: 7 DAYS


Completed 7 sets of postcards last night. That should keep me held over untill the day I move in. That will keep focus on the dress up until that point in time. I'll probably develope another set of cards for that period between now and that time, but now the main focus is this dress.
Here is the sketch for the jacket and other portions of the dress that weren't the main pieces. I still need to work out the head pieces... time is slipping!!!



Dress Pieces - actual cut pieces (these need die cuts now)

INNER:
12

4 main - trigram die-cuts / 4 seasons / patterning
8 woven - patterning

OUTER:
15

5 main - floral patterns / trigrams / ying-yang / patterning
10 woven - atterning


Dress Form - ruff paper dummy

The dress has these 9 pieces that are themselves interconnected with each other in sets of 3. There are a total of 27 main pieces. The 4 inner pieces (the longer of the 9) are going to have the 4 seasons on them. The outer will be floral patterns and trigrams. All of the 9 pieces have a ying-yang on them at the circle base. The 4 inner are the crest version. Each piece will have a pattern cut into it so as to resemble lace or intricate weaves. These patterns will be based in large areas, but used sparingly as they will take some time to cut out.
There are 3 other frontal pieces. 2 long drapes that flag the left and right legs as well as an intricate center piece. There will be long thinly sliced paper on the inner most section of the dress.
