What a wonderful young woman this student is, so calm and collected when working! Last time I asked Isabella to make a mock princess cut mock up along with other things, she completed her homework assignments with ease. I had her try on the mock up to check the fit and it was PERFECT! To the point I thought we had sewn it in class, but no she just sewed the paper pattern for practice. I was floored how perfect the seams were!
When asked which she finds easier drafting the pattern or sewing the garment, Isabella replied "both" she finds the sewing easy because she can see how it goes together by drafting the pattern pieces so it makes sense to her. This makes me very happy that a novice sewer finds garment construction easy!
Homework is to create a princess mock up using personal measurements, the adjusted mock ups for mom and sister. We will see you in the new year.
In the meantime have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year filled with love, happiness and good health, hopefully Santa will be good to you!
