Hello all and sorry for the delay in writing your homework assignment. You are to add the collar, facings and sleeves to your dresses as shown in class on Monday. I will show you how to professionally finish the facing at the hemline on the centre front. We will also cover the button placement so please bring your buttons into class and we can compare the different looks and sizes. For next week we will also be covering the slash pockets and bound buttonholes so please bring in the extra fabric in contrasting colours.
The second half of the class will be to draft the robe with a shawl collar using three plain fronts with no darts as a storybord. It is essential that these fronts be drafted at home and brought into class on Monday or you will not have time to complete the storyboard and we will not be going over this method again in this module. We will be going on to the more tailored fronts with collars and two piece sleeves in the next classes.
