I have very little experience with origami though I’ve always, always enjoyed it. When my mom came from Japan she bought us tons of origami paper and a book and we spent hours making up things! As I grew up, I forgot the things I’ve learned. I couldn’t and still can’t fold a swan (unlike some people who have it memorized).
I was so excited when our teacher for the day, Leonard a.k.a Leo, told us that we will be doing clothing origami! I’ve always seen pictures of that on the internet and wondered how they make those. I was really eager to learn during the workshop and even though I had a crappy first try during class, I was so motivated to make them as beautiful as the ones in the video tutorials that as soon as I went home I went looking for paper and quickly loaded the video tutorials on youtube!
I really really enjoyed this workshop, and honestly I would have kept origami-ing the night away if i could!
Instead of using plain paper I decided to mix it up a bit by printing patterns and prints I found online and cut them up to use for the origami. After doing so many origami’s I decided on 4 pieces: A top with a skirt to pari with, the royal wedding gown (not in white, haha!) and a t-shirt dress! :)
For those interested in the tutorials….
ENJOY! I did. :)
