I have a hard time navigating the internet. I get lost easily.
But I have directions: find content that relates to the course learning outcomes.
Museums are a good source of design inspiration and clothing details for pattern making.
There is a Museum of Online Museums so that seemed a good place to start. I was expecting an online version of traditional museums but I found something that is quite amazing!
Cliff Muskiet’s Stewardess/Flight Attendant Uniform Collection
This is a wonderful resource as the clothing is dated, and there are detailed pictures of the garments. An assigned pattern project based on the database would be interesting. The pattern making project could incorporate ‘period’ details or reproducing the pattern for a specific garment.
I wandered a bit around the museums, and though more appropriate for my other course, I also found
The Vintage Wallpaper Gallery
Like most museums, you need TIME to visit.
