It was great to be back in class, the ladies did not skip a beat, they got back into the bodice without a problem even did a pop quiz at the beginning of class! To be fair because it has been such a long time since the last bodice class I sent the document by email the day before so they can prepare. I must be getting soft in my old age LOL!!!
We started off with a flared, gored dress that looks good on every body type. Yesterday was the drafting only, next week we will be sewing it together in a 3 hour class no less!
Yes there is homework even after the first class :)
- Finish any unfinished work on the pattern
- trace the pattern pieces
- cut out a mock up complete with all the necessary markings
- leave the pattern pieces on the fabric bring to the next class as is to sew together and fit the body.
- We will be going over how to modify the neckline on the master pattern and then on the pattern pieces. The class will be sewing the dress as well as finishing the neckline with a facing for practice. Please choose inexpensive fabric for this exercise.
