Hello ladies! Great job in class last night there was a lot of learning going on :)
Your homework for this week is to create the third and final mock up of the series, the sheath, princess (starting from the shoulder) and mock princess (starting from the arm cye) lines. Last night we saw more mock ups and were fine tuning the adjustments for that elusive perfect fit and I must say that it's not so elusive any more! There were some well fitting garments in class. We also added the "skirt" portion of the dress completing the task of the basic front and back dress portion of the module. Last night we made a discovery of the distance between the waist and hips down the side seam that it's different on different body shapes so the standard 17 cm may not apply in some cases.
For next week you are to create a new mock up of one of the above mentioned styles that you have not done yet in a dress format and bring it next week for fitting incorporating all the adjustments that were covered so far.
Next week we will also be drafting a vest using personal measurements and it has been brought to my attention there is a desire to sew this garment in its entirety. I think it's an excellent idea even though it is not on the official plan. Please bring some lining and fabric you would like to use for this project, we will be cutting the lining in class and marking with tailor tacks. If all goes well we can hand baste it and fit the lining ready to sew both the lining and fabric at home for the following week to finish in class.
