Hello all this is it, going into the last week of module 5 and the final exam. It will be an open book exam encompassing the two piece sleeve, Dolman sleeve, under collar, over collar and facing. There will also be questions and a comparison question. You were asked to draft a bodice front and back with a shawl collar with a specific set of measurements. For measurement chart click here
Next week we will continue with the blazer draft used in module 6, last night we started with the draft and went over the two piece sleeve once again. On display were the various pattern pieces necessary for the blazer and you were handed a sheet with a list of necesseties, to review click here
Ideally I would like to finish the pattern pieces after the exam next week to be ready to fit the mock up on the first night of class in module 6 and start cutting. Module 6 is all sewing and the final mark with be the blazers' fit and workmanship. It will be so gratifying to see the work come to fruition, I hope all the students are able to take this final module as the culmination of one year's worth of studying!
