For your homework this week please create a basic pencil skirt pattern using your own measurements with a slit at the centre back as it shows in the book, 12 cm high by .5 cm at the very bottom. Next week we will be adding the markings to the pattern pieces and then cutting the mock up in class. We will also be transferring the markings from the paper to the fabric then sewing it together by hand to try on in class so we can see how they fit and if there are any issues to be dealt with before we go on.
So for next week please bring to class the following:
- muslin or broadcloth or whatever type of fabric you happen to have that is easily marked
- basic sewing kit
- tracing paper and wheel if you have one
- paper and fabric scissors
