Hello all and welcome to the first class of the men's wear section! Last night was a real eye opener for the students, they even learned a bunch of new terminology in both Italian and English!
There are going to be 4 (5 counting my husband who had to model his jacket last night) very happy gentlemen at the end of this section they will be the lucky recipients of a brand new, bespoke tailored suit complete with an extra pair of pants - one flat front and one with pleated front!
Next week the class will continue with the draft and have a mock up ready for the fitting in class 3 either at the beginning of class or at the end of the class but we will definitely be cutting fabric and lining by class 4.
The pleated pants are the ones that will be created in class because it`s a new skill that needs to be learned, the flat front pants are like any other pants you have created in the past so they can be created at home even after the class if necessary. The pants will have ½ lining on the front only (to the knee).
Here is your shopping list:
So now I have to finish my husband's pants so he can model the whole suit, better get to work!
Have a great day, can't tell you how proud I am of this talented group of ladies!
