Hello all so Kelli and Tonia started back to class in a condensed course to catch up with the rest of the book 2 class and today was the first day back.
I came to class with what I thought was going to be a challenging and speedy plan for them, we went over it first thing and they were impressed "yeah that sounds great! where do we start?"
So we started with going over the skirts section and I explained what I needed from them, they agreed to do most of the skirts drafting at home so they can go forward in the book, and forward they went with LIGHTNING SPEED!!!!!
During the course of the day these two amazing ladies drafted so much I can't even list it! Plus they fit some patterns on paper on their bodies to see how the construction works. In other words they did 3 days worth of work in one!
Not to lose momentum I assigned homework :) I am not mean only a teacher who likes to challenge her students and push them beyond their perceived limits because I can see potential in the students to do more in less time.
Suffice it to say there is a great deal of satisfaction in teaching such wonderful people to become accomplished bespoke tailors.
Keep up the good work ladies!
