Well on Thursday was the first time I had a virtual class of 6 people! It worked out very well, the quietest class I have ever taught, it was pointed out that there is a "mute" button available, where in a live class there is not!!! LOL!!! It's the truth!
We are at the beginning of semester 4 with this group of ladies, almost the end of book 1 so we opted to continue online with the drafting part. Hopefully we will be able to do the sewing live, sooner rather than later...
On Thursday the class learned how to draft the Raglan sleeve for woven fabrics. Even online they get to do the dreaded storyboards! Deep down, way down students actually love them especially when they have to draft a pattern a few months down the road...
The class went very smoothly and we even finished early :) but there is homework:
Homework is to draft one raglan sleeve pattern using personal measurements and two more using different measurements. Trace the pattern pieces on the personal size pattern only. (So there will be 3 patterns total, two will be colour coded only, the pattern pieces traced for only 1.)
Next week we will be drafting the robe on page 96, 97 with the shawl collar and double breasted front. Please have ready a basic block using personal measurements for the robe we will be adding the sleeve and collar in class.
Have a great 2 weeks and stay safe
