I won! I got the e-mail this morning confirming that I won the competition! My shirt will be produced early next year! I can't believe it! I'll post all updates here.
 
 
I am a finalist in the C&C California x College Fashionista T-Shirt Design Contest! My design, along with two others, was chosen by a panel of judges. It is now up to the people of Facebook to comment on which design they like the best. The design with the most comments will be sold on C&C California's website as well as Zappos.com. Voting is open until December 16, 2011. Click the photo below to vote for my design! Every comment counts!

 
 
Over Summer 2011, I completed and internship with the VCU's School of Nursing at the MCV campus. My task was to recreate a nurse's uniform from the early 1930s using yearbooks, photos, and an actual uniform from the St. Philip's hospital (the Black hospital) as my references. I also had to write a research paper on nurse's uniforms, interview the archivist I worked under, and produce a muslin and patterns of the design. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take photos of the complete uniform, but below I have a slideshow of process pictures, showing my documentation of the real uniform, as well as one of the two muslins I constructed. A link to the PDF of the pattern will also be included below.
