Great class! Very productive in two hours Andrew drafted a robe, traced the pattern pieces, cut out the robe and sewed it together so he can fit the body! Again in only TWO HOURS! Andrew has such a natural ability for tailoring that no matter what I teach him or how hard I try to trip him up it all makes sense and he even corrects me which is exactly what I want him to do!!! It is so important for a student to think critically in this highly competitive industry, to take on a challenge with enthusiasm and embrace it which Andrew does with great panache!
....and then there is homework!
Homework is to draft another robe using different measurements and sew it together as well. Write the procedure down as well. Draft coat dress front and back on hand out ready to make the armhole adjustments for sleeves and then start on sleeves next class.
