Hello all sorry for the delay in writing I also have been doing my homework!
You are to finish the padstitching on the lapel or do as much as possible. The steps were shown in class and you were given a hand-out showing how to space the rows of stitching. Please don't fret if the rows are not straight or if the stitches are not exactly the same, this is your first try and are commended just for trying as it is a lot of work! I did mine last night so now I am ready to install the pockets which we will be doing next week so please bring in your sewing machine as well as a practice piece of the same fabric. Also bring in some fusible interfacing - enough for the opening and the strips. We will be cutting them in class I will bring in an extra iron and plan to be there early so if you have questions or unfinished stitching come in early.
