A PVC coat, with Pop art lining. This piece was completed a part of my A-level textiles course under the title of 'Art Movements'. I followed the route of Pop art and this was the final outcome. It was something I resented deeply throughout the making process. From working without a pattern, hand stitching PVC until my fingers were permanently marked with the imprint of a needle and trying to make the lining fit the jacket when it was one and half sizes smaller were all tasks that led me to sob into the sewing machine. And I'm only barely exaggerating here. But looking back on it now, I actually sort of like it.
To complete the lining I combined pop art images on Photoshop and printed these onto transfer paper. Then I used the heat press to transfer the design onto the lining. I embroidered elements of the lining to make them stand out paid special attentsion to my favourite, most personal images. Like Johny Depp. And Ed Westwick. And Minnie Mouse. Below are close up images of the lining.
Even though I can now appreciate the coat and can stand to look at it, I'll reserve judgment until after I find out my grade. In just under a month time. Not that I'm counting down or anything.
