Year 9 Textiles - Clothing Challenge

In Year 9  Textile students take their first venture into making clothing. They can choose to make either a skater skirt or pair of board shorts. It's a challenging design brief but our students have shown they can rise to that challenge and have produced some highly skillful and creative outcomes more synonymous with GCSE work. Here are just a handful:

"During textiles I made a skirt for my younger cousin who is 7 years of age. I love textiles anyway but I found making the skirt was so much fun. This is because I got to learn so many new skills, such as doing a zip and how to construct an A-line skirt with a waistband. I learned new skills like "stitch in the ditch", and improved my confidence on the sewing machine. Overall I really enjoyed creating, designing and making the garment. My theme was the great outdoors." Mia Gaulton 

"My shorts are based on a London theme. I have incorporated embroidery, patchwork, tie dye, block printing and many other techniques. I really enjoyed this project because it was challenging but fun." Zoe Benn

"My skirt is based on London landscapes and use the colours red, blue and black. I used tie dye, embroidery, applique, stencilling and more to convey the theme in a fun way, which would suit the needs of my target market. I really enjoyed this project because it was a garment that I could fit to myself, which I had never done before." Elizabeth Selwood
