Hello all, sorry for the delay in writing.... For the second last week of class (hard to believe!) your homework is to study for the exam. Go over the bodice draft taking into account the armhole adjustments for the sleeve. Go over the set in sleeve draft and be sure you completely understand the relationship between the armhole and sleeve cap as well as the sleeve variations and the adjustment for the larger upper arm. There will also be questions and please bring in different colour pencils/highlighters.
As I had mentioned in class for module 5 you will be required to create more mock-ups so please check out sales this week at Fabricland for the best prices. During the summer break and to best utilize the class time in module 5 I would like each of you to please create about 30 bodice fronts and backs in your personal measurements, the front should be only with the base dart, some to the apex and some to right for a side dart. The backs should be just plain with no darts or shaping to be finished in class. These will be used for storyboards on collars and more sleeves namely the two piece sleeve.
