the almost end of first semester.

On Monday, I will have my last final and my last class for the year. High school, I'd thought, was pretty tough. But looking back on it now, I can see how much free time I had. I always had homework, but there was always enough time to take breaks in between and have fun and do nothing after school, and update my blog whenever.

You guys have probably noticed that i haven't had the luxury to update nearly as often as I would have liked. I've missed this blog!

So, to make it up, here is a compilation of my favorite works that I did this semester.
To start off, this is my final for patternmaking. This semester, we learned how to make bodices with darts and princess seams,and draw patterns for collars and sleeves. So for our final, we needed to design a shirt and make it.
I'm really happy with how it came out. I haven't gotten a grade back, but I don't think it will be pretty considering my sewing is pretty terrible. There aren't any buttonholes on it since I'm not sure how to get those on yet.

Sketching homework; sketching was one of my favorite classes this semester because I like to draw so the homework assignments were pretty fun for me. I felt like I was improving in my ability to draw poses and develop more of a style in this class.

This is a development sketch that I did at a subway station while waiting for my train (which never arrived, even after waiting for 45 minutes! The M train is a bitch)

These two aren't my own design. We needed to find garments and then draw them on a figure. Then, draw them as flats. I drew clothes that I wanted from Taiwanese websites.

Perfume ad for my perfume design project. You might (or might not) remember this picture if you've been following me long enough.

Menswear project. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Sketchbook picture from my light color design class.

There've been a lot of assignments this semester so just narrowing down is kind of difficult. Hopefully there'll be lots of nice things for me to post next semester. I'm sure there will be. I just need to find time to post them.

Love, Kaia

Loving the drawings. High school itself isn't hard (depending on what you do), but just because college gives you so much leeway, does not make it easier, though.
