QI – Explore the way to transform a deconstructed suit into a dress

Qi Liu

In this task, I deconstructed the suit and then remade it into a dress. This course gave me a way to think and explore my ideas on reform old garments. I chose to reform a suit into a dress because the suit’s material has stiff and stable properties of the fabric. It is different from the traditional dress material, which is some smooth and soft materials. To deconstruct the suit, I found some basic methods to deconstruct the suit, which can maximize used the material, and I also used some leftover fabrics to help remake the dress.
