Hello ladies that was quite the mental workout today :)
You did an AMAZING job on the shirts! Even though we draft the patterns using personal measurements they still have to be tweaked to fit properly. The fit is paramount after all a garment can look great and be finished perfectly, if it doesn't fit it will not be worn. So patience is the key and keep working with the mock up, reading it, adjusting it and recording the findings on your master pattern for future reference the do it again and again if necessary. As you progress the steps will be less and less you will learn to see the issues right off the bat and make the necessary adjustments with a lot more ease and much more quickly.
Your homework is to draft a brand new shirt using the same measurements used in class incorporating the the changes as necessary as seen on the mock up. Trace the new pattern pieces and cut a new mock up for comparison purposes. Do a second draft using different measurements and trace the pattern pieces, if you have time in the almost month long break do a mock up for the other wearer :) as well. Bring everything to the next class.
Next class we will be completing the shirt by drafting the collar and cuffs and we will be sewing it together completely in class so bring buttons and anything else required to complete the shirt. Be prepared to work hard!
Have a great day and time off.
PS: please don't forget about the other tops try to go over the drafts and make the adjustments we discussed in class this morning for a perfect fitting asymmetrical top!
