Great class Andrew, your enthusiasm is contagious! Today we started the jeans by drafting them and getting together the pattern pieces. We are nearing the end of the initial pants section that means exams, a necessary part of the program that builds confidence and makes the students aware of what they still need to learn. Andrew has been given notice of the final drafting as well as sewing exams so he is ready! In the meantime the homework assignment for this week is to trace the pattern pieces as explained in class and create a mock up. Have the back pocket design completed as well. The mock up will be done with the pockets as well as the zipper in broadcloth.
Below are a few fun facts and some guidance on the order of sewing for jeans.
