Janet tried on a mock princess with the darts ending at the hips, with the neckline adjustment she has to do to eliminate the gaping there is a bit of excess around the hips and down to the hem, we did a couple of things; a) pinned one side at the side seams to take in the excess b) pinned the other side down to the hem where the princess lines would be and let me tell you side b looked like the dress was painted on Janet! The solution is to do the neckline adjustment as instructed; do the front with princess lines to the hem and take in the excess at that point, the results are mind blowing!
Miriam, madame "I don't wear dresses" Miriam, made a dress to attend a wedding and it was BEAUTIFUL!!! The fit was impeccable and the "sleeves" (volant) really added to it. I loved Miriam's reaction when I called her on the former stance on dresses, she said she is open to anything now! This is the whole point to get people to be adventurous with their wardrobe choices/options, the fact that Miriam is now open to wearing skirts and dresses is of great personal satisfaction to me but more so to her because there are now choices that seemed to be out of the question prior to taking this course.
So now for the bad news LOL homework:
Homework is to draft a sleeve using personal measurements and another set of measurements (different from the generic ones), create a mock up sleeve in your personal measurements using one of the mock ups already made please.
