Hello all and welcome back to the sewing class! You will all have a brand new dress for Christmas with sleeves that fit! Choose a style that you would like to realize and we can make it happen! It was suggested we go on a field trip to learn about fabrics and how to choose the appropriate fabric for the project. It's kind of like "what came first the chicken or the egg?" What do you choose first the fabric or the style? Think about this question and we will answer it in class on Saturday. My thoughts are that we decide on a style draft the pattern and create a mock up this week and perhaps next week go shopping for the fabrics at stores to be determined in class. This will give a full look at where to start the journey all the way to the end and that is only the first project! You know I like to challenge you all to realize you full potential as tailors and you rise up to the challenge in spades!!!
Hell all it has been a long time since our last class so a review of the set in sleeve seems to be in order. Please go over the draft procedure using the attached document. Go over the questions by clicking on the link and use them do a draft methodically answering the questions along the way. It may seem overwhelming but it's only what you have already learned. See you on Friday!
