Hello all I hope you are enjoying winter so far! I just wish it would go away....
Anyway it has been a bit tough but it too shall pass. The highlight has been the students and clients I have had the pleasure of working with :)
Thursday was the second class of the semester with the Bradford students and they delivered! By the end of the class I was so elated I felt like I was walking on air! These ladies drafted a Raglan sleeve pattern in the morning, with the exception of one who unfortunately had to attend a funeral so she drafted her pattern at lunch time; cut out their fabric shortly before lunch and then completed the top with time to spare by the end of the day! One little speedy Gonzales was finished by 3 at which point she ended up helping others. Some of the students even learned how to use a cover stitch machine to finish the top!

But alas there will be homework
Next class will be focused on the set-in sleeve drafting and installation choose your fabrics accordingly for a loose top use something that drapes well for a more fitted top choose something with body the will hold the structure;
