So summer classes are HOT! I mean hot in the true sense of the word! Yesterday was the blazers class complete with hot irons, poorly working A/C and a bunch of HOT ladies in the class!! I mean this hot as in way cool!!!
Anyway we learned how to add welt pockets with a storyboard to start with and then right into the jacket front! It was kind of like baptism by fire to go right into the jacket front without much practice but these ladies are troopers, they did an AMAZING job! All of them did great, their personality seemed to shine through even in their welts. Some did the pockets without breaking a sweat, others on the other hand had puddles of sweat where they were working LOL!!!
Blazer teaching points: order of class
Next class we will be sewing the collar in place, adding the sleeves and tailoring them adding the rollino and shoulder pads to the inside. We will bag the lining to finish the jacket
