Well I have to say Nita showed me some of the cutest baby outfits with gorgeous roses on them that she made by burning the fabric to curl like real roses! Nita used to teach how to make Dior roses once upon a time, I hoping she will share her techniques when she comes for the intensive class in October :)
In the meantime there is work to do so your homework is to draft a front bodice in both the generic measurements as well as your own measurements as shown on page 44 -45 using one pattern to draft two different styles of princess lines, from the armhole and from the shoulder. I did a quick demo on how to do this and you seemed to understand the process very well. We only discussed the back as shown on page 60, the mock princess from the armhole to the bottom of the fish eye dart. I will show you how to do the princess lines on the back next class, it requires a little time to wrap one's head around the procedure.
Have a great week!
