Going to a Party

Low, Rachel C&T Publishing ePub

Do you love to go to a party? I know I do! Whenever I receive a party invitation, one of the first things I ask is: What am I going to wear? Then, to decide, I ask myself some other questions: What kind of party is it? Is there a theme? What time of year is it? With this information I get excited and start to envision all the possible looks I could put together. Lucky for us, we are all learning how to make our own clothes and accessories so we can design our own party outfit. How fun!

In this section you will make the essential party must-haves: a festive dress, a party purse, shoe clips, and the perfect party hair accessory—a glitter headband. Using your imagination you can style each piece to reflect your personality.

Bumblebee, The

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

YOU better not fool with a Bumblebee!—

Ef you don’t think they can sting—you’ll see!

They’re lazy to look at, an’ kindo’ go

Buzzin’ an’ bummin’ aroun’ so slow,

An’ ac’ so slouchy an’ all fagged out,

Danglin’ their legs as they drone about

The hollyhawks ’at they can’t climb in

’Ithout ist a-tumble-un out agin!

Wunst I watched one climb clean ’way

In a jim’son-blossom, I did, one day,—

An’ I ist grabbed it—an’ nen let go—

An’ “Ooh-ooh! Honey! I told ye so!”

Says The Raggedy Man; an’ he ist run

An’ pullt out the stinger, an’ don’t laugh none,

An’ says: “They has ben folks, I guess,

’At thought I wuz predjudust, more er less,—

Yit I still muntain ’at a Bumblebee

Wears out his welcome too quick fer me!”

Fashion Designing

Low, Rachel C&T Publishing ePub

FASHION ILLUSTRATION

Another great way to discover your creative style is to do some fashion illustration. Whether you have an entire collection in mind, an outfit you want to make, or just one piece, fashion illustration gives you (and others) a visual representation of what your specific vision is.

Most fashion designers are constantly drawing their designs for their collections. They work from these drawings to consider various fabrics and ultimately to choose fabrics and make the garment.

Some designers draw their designs freehand. Some use croquis.

It provides a well-proportioned fashion figure for you to draw your garments and accessories on. You have your own croquis to color and design! Trace a croquis using lightweight paper or vellum (what the fashion designers use) or make photocopies of the page so you have lots of croquis on hand to use and design.

Patterns of different pieces of clothing and boots are also blank and will help you draw the various fashion silhouettes. Trace over them again and again if you use lightweight paper for your croquis, copy them with a photocopier, or make templates on a heavier paper or cardboard so you can use them over and over.
