Well I have to say that these ladies have outdone themselves!
Hyacinthe has successfully adjusted her pants to fit her "new" body perfectly as well as a slim gored skirt! Great job Hyacinthe! Don't be afraid to cut off excess fabric, makes life much easier. For next week you said you will create a semi-circle skirt (or three!) so go for it and bring them to class to hem them. They should hang for a few days before hemming to allow the fabric and gravity to do their thing....
Mary is diligently working on her pants and doing a fantastic job! For next week try to have the front fly zipper in by using your storyboard made in class for just that purpose; step by step instruction. It will serve you better to try and figure it out on your own rather than having me standing over your shoulder all the time...... If you should get stuck then leave it for next class and we can work on it together.
Audrey surprised even herself as to how fast she can produce a garment! It took her almost 30 minutes to sew a semi-circle skirt! Not sure what took so long :)...... Excellent work Audrey it is quite a feat for a novice sewer but you did it! For next week you decided to work on a wrap skirt that is lined. Please try to draft the pattern at home and have the pieces ready to cut the lining in class. Yes you are lining it :)
Danielle B. has successfully created a beautiful robe for a very lucky friend! Great job Danielle! Don't be afraid to clip before sewing it makes life much easier :) You have really challenged yourself by creating an asymmetrical skirt in book 2! Today you cut the lining, baste it together and try it on before cutting the fabric to check the fit. I explained briefly how to put it together, if all goes well cut the fabric and have it tailor tacked ready to put together, if you should run into a problem bring to the next class to work on it.
Great class, great people so a great day!
