Textile & Design Major

Over twelve months and many, many hours my daughter
spent on her Major for Textiles.
Her theme was inspired by Vintage wedding gowns.
The photos really don't do it justice.
The bodice has lots of beading, embroidering and Angelina
Fibres sewn throughout. The skirt has five layers, including
a lining, 3 layers of tulle and the beautiful satin.
She also beaded doilies and made two strands of ribbon
to hang from the skirt.
It is so amazing in real life.
She received a Band 6 today for Textiles and
we are so proud and she truly deserves this mark after
all the effort she put in.
After saying all of the above you can imagine our
heartache when it arrived back from the HSC
marking with a black pen mark across the
front of the skirt but this is a long story so i will
stop by saying the issue is still not resolved
but the skirt has now been to the dry cleaners
and is looking wonderful again.
The marker has been reprimanded and i hope this never
happens to another students work again.


  1. Congratulations Ali, you have made a beautiful piece of work. So glad it wasn't ruined by the HSC marker. Well Done, you should be very proud.

  2. What a beautiful dress Allie! xx
