So I'm a bit late in posting Janet's homework... I have been a busy beaver! To be sure she got all the necessary information I sent an email almost as soon as the class was over just in case I couldn't make it on time to post before the next class. Good job I did!
We are working on a man's shirt, last class we did some sewing, yes sewing on Skype! It works well with some strategic camera placement a bit of patience and we are off to the races!
I did a demo on how to sew together the side/sleeve seams, homework is to add the other sleeve and finish the side/sleeve seams using a flat fell seam in the same manner as the armhole. Fit the model and take some pix or have the model on hand for me to see the fit especially around the neckline. Next class we will cover how to finish the slit at the wrist, add one cuff in class, draft the collar and stand from there I will give instruction on how to proceed to add the collar during the following class, this will entail finishing the front placket, adding the collar stand to the collar fall and finally installing it to the body of the shirt. The shirt will be finished with a narrow hem before the buttons and buttonholes are added. That is the plan for the next couple of sessions.
