-The assignment this week was to create our own modules that contain interlocking cuts so that they can be connected together without the need for seams or sewing, and to integrate this module design into a garment. I created one hexagon shape that contained both male and female cuts and integrated this into a vest top - the modules formed the straps and two side connections on both sides of the top. The modules also formed a neckline feature because I wanted the vest to look nice.+The assignment this week was to create our own modules that contain interlocking cuts so that they can be connected together without the need for seams or sewing, and to integrate this module design into a garment.

 Other than the problem I encountered with Rhino, as mentioned earlier, I came across other problems during this project. The modules that connected the straps to the neck did not fit together because they were of different orientations - this meant that a smaller male part had to fit into a wider female cut, which wasn't secure and the strap continued to break away at this section. Therefore, these modules need amending so that the appropriate cuts are made and the straps stay safely intact. Other than the problem I encountered with Rhino, as mentioned earlier, I came across other problems during this project.

 Lastly, as I have not produced clothes or made patterns before, I encountered problems with creating a nice shape around the female form - particularly around the bust. I think I would need to add in some stitching to take in the material a little around the bust so that the fabric would fall over this area better. Lastly, as I have not produced clothes or made patterns before, I encountered problems with creating a nice shape around the female form - particularly around the bust.

 I like my final module design, I think it's simple but pretty, and I enjoyed incorporating this into a garment. With some extra thought and work, I think my garment would be a nice looking piece that people might want to have. I deliberately chose materials that were different in colour and of contrasting texture, which I think worked well in the end. I like my final module design, I think it's simple but pretty, and I enjoyed incorporating this into a garment.
