Hello all, sadly this will be our last class in the pants module, hopefully everyone enjoyed the class and learned a lot. As you know there will be a final exam during the first hour. This is a closed book exam and will last 60 minutes starting promptly at 7:00 pm. For the students that still have to write the test you can do so prior to the exam starting at 6:30. You will be required to create a front and back draft with measurements provided at that time, there will also be some written questions to answer. If you are unsure of the draft, I would suggest you do a few drafts at home without the book, then check back to see if it was successful.
I have created a glossary on blackboard to assist you with some terminology please check it out. Also bring in a highlighter as well as the rest of your drafting kit.
We will also be learning how to top stitch on denim using top-stitching thread. The waistband on the present pants will be finished as well as the hems. The waistband is to be cut and interfaced using the total waist measurement derived from the pants plus seam allowance by 10 cm. Pin and stitch it onto the pants, the unstitched edge may be serged or zig-zagged. We will do the rest in class. Students who are usure of how to stitch waistband on to pants bring the waistband that has been interfaced to class for 6:30 and we will cover that material at that time.
Please bring in the following:
