Wow what a lot of ground we covered today! Andrew added the princess and mock princess seams to a back, this is significant because they are treated far differently than the front ones. We also went over the circle skirt and how to cut it completely on the bias so the draping is even all the way around, trickier than one might think because if the pattern is not placed on the true bias the skirt will not hang properly. Andrew is making a full circle skirt for a friend of his along with a crop top that is very fitted which he learned how to line today and the proper fabrics to use for lining and the outside. There was a lot of information for Andrew to absorb in only 2 hours but he's a trooper and gets the process very easily! Job well done!
Homework is to draft a front and back with both princess and mock princess seams. Use the instruction book as a guide to the princess seams and the hand out for the mock princess seams. I would like one front and one back for each style along with the pattern pieces that are labelled and all the reference points marked as shown in class. Cut the circle skirt as shown in class completely on the bias and sew together a mock up to bring to class next week. Finish the crop top mock up and bring it in to show me the finished product. If there are any questions just call me and ask.
Have a great week!
