Spring Raincoat


Student: Amy Bohnenkamp
Course: DS 253- Patternmaking-Apparel Design
Program: TAD

The primary consideration for the Spring Raincoat was to make an equally practical, wearable and artistically interesting garment. This project required a great deal of forethought and preparation.  Patternmaking is the most intense “design” step in creating apparel, and the focus for this project was creating pattern pieces that would fit well together while considering fabric choices and the wearer’s needs.  I went through a great deal of experimentation with pattern shapes, fabric options and finishing techniques before completing my final design.
