Great start to the new semester in a brand new book!
The blazers were graded and everyone did exceptionally well, the grade was made up of 50% fit and 50% workmanship. I can tell you that everyone received the full marks for the fit, very proud of these ladies!
Also the class received their certificates of completion from Italy, well deserved after 2 years of work. Congratulations!!!
We started off with asymmetry in skirts, they surprised me with the speed and accuracy with which they completed the task of the first asymmetrical skirt pattern! We even finished a bit early which is unheard of in these classes, usually we run overtime...
There is homework,
Homework is to create a mock-up of the skirt on page 12. Be sure to have the over/under laps on the bottom part of the skirt.
Because you are such great students, I asked you to think of a new asymmetrical skirt style using what you learned in class, you came up with two ideas now I would like you to come up with 2 more ideas that will be conducive to the style we learned yesterday.
I hope you remember what was discussed because I do and I want to have 4 different styles next class. This is only a conceptual exercise not be drafted or sewn.... yet... You may use the designs discussed in class as well as two more new ones.
