What a lot of hard work yesterday! I push these ladies to the extreme and they deliver! Yesterday we drafted a coat dress with patch pockets, front overlap, self-facing, wing collar and a specific sleeve with an inverted V design feature at the hemline! This was all in 3 hours!
We analysed the pattern extensively then proceeded to draft, in the midst of all this there was also a pop quiz on how to prepare the armhole so the numbers can be used to draft the sleeve, they aced it!!!
But there is homework
Homework is to sew together the dress only, the collar, self-facing and sleeves will be sewn in the next class to finish the mock up
have a great couple of weeks!
