Coming to an end

Production due date and we are getting some fantastic final products. We have been using fabric donated by Motto, so the cost has been minimal. Thank you so much. We hope you enjoy seeing what creative things they have produced.

Unit 4 progressing on toiles and production

The year 12 students are working hard on the completion of their toiles. A toile (pronounced “twahl”) is a “mock up” of the final garment. This is done to confirm the pattern, design and shape fit the person it is being designed for. Although usually done in calico, as we have a range of fabrics being used in final productions, the toile fabrics need to reflect a similar weight or stretch.
Some students have decided to make their toile using the same fabric as their final, to give themselves extra practice working with tricky fabrics like satins and taffetas
