Hello all sorry for the delay in writing!
Your homework is to practice the tailor tacking and basting. If you did not complete the mock up in class please finish it and send me a picture of the front and back if possible. My recommendation is to cut and mark another mock up with the tailor tacks, remember the stitches don't have to be very close together it is much faster if they are a little further apart, the marks will still be there and you will eventually only use the tacking on darts with the seams being marked only with the clips.
Because there are going to be 2 weeks between the classes please take the time to draft a couple of patterns as well using different measurements/styles, repetition is the key to success.
Have a great 2 weeks looking forward to the festival and seeing the final creation!
