Well I have to say this young man is AMAZING!!!!!
Today we had an extended session to finish a job we started last week, one would think what took so long? Let me tell you the ways:
Andrew decided he needs to know a bunch of things like how to work with lace, types of fabrics to use for circle skirts, linings, foundation materials aaaaannnndddd how to draft circle skirts!!!!! Whew that's a lot to learn in one day with the addition of how to install an invisible zipper. So how extended was this session exactly? Instead of 2 hours Andrew spent 3 hours!!
What a trooper this young man is in only THREE hours he did all of the above PLUS installed a collar and separating zipper on a fleece jacket AND finished the zipper with a facing. By the end I asked if he had any more mental capacity to learn, he actually said there was no more room, I was relieved because I had no more left to teach!!!!
So for homework there is only to finish any unfinished work, next week we are going to complete the fleece top so bring everything needed to finish the job and then go on to drafting a shirt.
Whew!!!! Have a great week!
