Hello folks so men's wear is more involved than meets the eye isn't it!
Last class students started by taking measurements and starting the drafts, last night the class continued with the draft but because of the many components the drafts were not completed so students will continue on Thursday with the drafts and cut and sew the mock up so the models can come in towards the end of the class for a fitting. This is probably going to be the most exciting class for these students to see the drafts come to life!
I would like the class to try and check the pattern pieces before cutting the mock ups to be sure they are correct. By this time you should have the master pattern for both the jacket and the pants completed, try to have the pattern pieces for the fabric already traced and ready to cut on Thursday. Once the mock up is done the class can continue with tracing the rest of the pattern pieces before the gentlemen arrive for their fittings.
I am positive the suits that will be completed will be outstanding!
