I can't believe it, next week is the last class for the skirts module! It seems like we just started! The final exam will take place next week in the first part of the class. Students will be allowed 45 minutes to complete the tasks and it is a closed book exam, everything must be done from memory. Please bring in 3 different colour pencils, I will want students to show the base, A-line, tapered and bias cut skirts. A legend will be required to tell me which colour is used for which skirt, measurements will be given at the beginning of class. Please be on time, we will be starting PROMPTLY at 7:00. After the exam class will be shown how to install a waistband (some will be given instruction on how to install a zipper as well), class will then be shown how to hem a skirt properly. So please bring in your sewing machines again (sorry!). This will cap off all that you have learned these weeks by having a finished muslin you can refer back to when sewing your own skirts.
