It's always a pleasure teaching this young woman! She is working on the final exam for her certificate from Italy, the blazer! It is a very challenging job to create a blazer from "scratch", literally from a right angle, to a pattern, to a mock up, to a finished garment that fits.
She will do very well I know it even though we have not had a single live class! Amanda's lessons have all been using Skype. She has persevered and made many patterns/garments all while working full time, as anyone who has taken this program knows it's not for the faint of heart. I look forward to presenting her with the certificate of completion in the near future.
Homework is to re-do the side front of the blazer on the mock up as well as correct the master pattern and pattern pieces. Finish the mock up ready to fit on the body for next class when we will be finalizing the remaining pattern pieces for the canvas, front stay, lining, upper collar and facing.
