So these talented people completed the bodice section of the program. In a short period of time they really learned a lot and accomplished even more! So now it's time for a break to put into practice all they have learned. The last class they actually cut and sewed a T-shirt for themselves in only THREE hours! Not bad for a beginner in class and one on Skype who could only write her questions/comments down with no webcam or microphone!
In the meantime homework is to make some more T-shirts to get more practice sewing, manipulating the fabric and adding the neckline finishing. Draft more patterns in different sizes of the T-shirts as well as the princess and mock princess fronts and sheath back. Remember all we discussed about fitting issues and how to take your cues from the numbers. This is the best way to keep everything fresh in your minds plus questions will arise during the drafting process that will lead to more learning so please jot them down and ask them at the beginning of the next class. We will touch base the middle of May to schedule the next set of classes to cover sleeves.
Have a great break you deserve it!
