Hello all summer is officially here! It's been a long time coming too with such a long harsh winter we had and a worse spring... It's all good now the weather is finally cooperating.
My summer started off with a bang! Two of my grandkids stayed with us for 10 days right after school finished, it was a great time and they are such good little helpers too! I never once had to tell them to clean up after themselves or to behave they listened very well to the surprise of the parents LOL!
Our house went up for sale meaning taking pictures for the listing and open houses which means even more cleaning and staging! I have come to the conclusion that if one wants a very clean house put it on the market, it's quite the motivator let me tell you!!
I have been meaning to post homework for my Bradford class and this is my first opportunity. I hope everyone enjoyed the class half as much as I did and learned as much as I did, teaching is also a great learning opportunity, the ladies continue to impress me with their stamina and joy of sewing, creating garments that fit very well and look great! Please check out my instagram @legrandchicitalia to see pix of their work.
But alas there will be homework because if you don't use it you will lose it...
Next semester will start in September, between now and then students are to draft at least one pattern per week of a different garment using pictures or other garments as inspiration, whether or not they do mock ups is their choice. In September we will be building on what we have learned already I will have a syllabus ready by mid-August. If there are any changes in email addresses please let me know.
Homework for summer 2019
Have a great summer, enjoy every minute of it. I miss the class already...
