This garment was inspired by vintage clothing donated to the Kansas State University’s Historic Costume and Textile Museum. All designs were taken from a commercial pattern derived from the combination of different donated clothing.
Vintage Empress was a commission project for Emma’s wedding reception. My only guidelines were to make the “jumpsuit of her dreams.”
Zero Waste was a team project in my draping class during my time at Kansas State. We were challenged to trade half of our fabric with our partner & make it work without producing any waste.
