Any dress begins as a thought in someone’s head, and then a sketch. A lot of feedback can come from the sketch step, because you can show it to the person you’re designing for, and see how they like it. People have noticed that a laser cutter can be good to get the crisp lines in the fabric that some designs require. Based on the size of the laser cutter, it might be necessary to only cut small amounts of the design at a time.
- The process began with designing a dress and then making a pencil sketch of it.
- The design was transferred to Adobe Illustrator, where it was further refined.
- After laser-cutting the fabric, the cuts still needed to be cleaned up and the dress sewn.
