Can you believe it, only 2 more classes left!!! Last night's class was intense to say the least. We learned how to install pockets and a front fly zipper. I was rather vague as to the homework assignment, my brain was tired and needed some time to process everything. I now have a clear vision of what I would like done.
The pockets were pretty straight forward and everyone seemed to have a good grasp on how they are to be installed, the zipper on the other hand is a little more involved. For this reason I would like you all to do a practice zipper on some muslin, only cut the front and you can keep the legs short, I am only interested in the zipper installation. Try installing it using the booklet and sheet received in class, write down any questions that arise in the process or anything that is not clear to you. We will install the zipper in the "real" pants next week during the first hour of class starting promptly at 6:30. The rest of the class will be dedicated to finishing the pants, including hemming.
