Just finished with Isabella's class and she is such a superb sewer! We practiced the flat fell seam for shirts as well as a French seam just because, and on both counts she did a better job than me! She even explained to me how she shortens a metal/plastic zipper to make it fit the garment, the student teaching the teacher! Pretty good for a 16 year old I would say!! But still there is homework....
Homework is to sew together the knit tops at the sleeves and side seams, draft a man’s shirt using dad’s measurements bring the draft and measurements to class next time to check for any adjustments that need to be made. Bring the zipper and fleece top to finish as well as the knit top sewn together ready to add the ribbing at the neckline.
Next class in two weeks, the Creativ Festival is next week where I will be teaching and judging ciao
