Hello all, this is the end of the road for pants! Hope you all enjoyed it and learned something in the process.
For next week please study your base drafts for the front and back, learn the lines and their uses, there will be a reference to the pants with no side seams as well. The rest is all materials covered in class and very easy short answers. Practice your drafts at home, you will be allowed only 60 minutes to complete the exam. Please be prompt, exam will start at 7:00 pm.
Afterwards there will be some more sewing. We will learn how to create flat fell seams, fake flat fell seams, topstitching using the guide foot and properly finished seams for pockets. Bring enough muslin/broadcloth pieces measuring 30 cm X 20 cm to create samples for your reference library. Cut out a front pocket in a couple of different styles, one curved and one diagonal, to practice again pockets once again. Please have the pocket openings interfaced on the wrong side and don't forget the twill tape! So basically bring in a pants front with two different shaped pockets
It will be a fun class, if anyone has any show and tell please bring it in as well
