Hellooo, not sure when you sent this as I accidentally clicked on my inbox and there are a couple of messages I had no idea about!
Anyway, as for the question! My year didn’t have a summer project at all but I think the year above had to do some kind of sketchbook if I’m correctly informed and I know that the girls in first year had one before they started. Theirs was to find a nice set of underwear (though come to think about it, it wouldn’t necessarily have to be sold as a set), unpick it all, make patterns from this and remake it. I think they had to do a sketchbook to go with it to sort of aesthetically inform what their remake looked like. It was a pretty cool project actually and even if you’re just applying and are unsure where to start building your knowledge, making patterns from deconstructed garments is a great way to start, especially if you can get hold of some sale items! I’m pretty sure they weren’t graded, it really was just an exercise to get them going. And remember the sample sizes are size 12 bottoms and 34B for bras :)
Does this mean you’re a secret potential first year?
Also, I’m not sure why but tumblr just won’t let me reply to this so my lovely anonymous person, you are now a text post x
