Great class with Isabella yesterday! This young woman sure knows her stuff in two short hours she finished a knit top with a bias binding at the armholes and neckline that she made in class I might add! Isabella had no trouble at all installing the binding and it looked great! we also started on the set in sleeve draft, I thought I had asked her to draft a front and back but it turns out I said it in my head and not out loud LOL! Not to worry it only took Isabella less than 10 minutes to complete the draft so from there we got the numbers to work with for the sleeve draft.
We did the sleeve draft in the form a storyboard for Isabella to use at home and now there is homework!
Homework is to finish the armholes and neckline on the second knit top along with the hem making the hem 2 cm with one or two stitching lines. Create sleeve drafts on page 50 – 51 – 52 and another set in sleeve using different measurements which means drafting a front and back as well to make the armhole adjustments for the sleeve draft and using the numbers from the armhole for the sleeve.
Next week will be March break for us so no classes I will be in the Bahamas :)
Have a good two weeks, I know I will!
