Hello ladies I was happy to see most of the teams were on the same page! It took a lot longer to fit the bodies than anticipated so everyone is a little behind as a result. That's ok we will catch up if not there is always the option of adding some more classes, ideally whole days for the sewing are better because with only 3 hours it seems no sooner we sit down it's time to go.
Your job is to finish adding the front stay to the canvas and get it ready to sew on to the jacket. I know on the syllabus it says the models were supposed to come in for a fitting well that won't happen quite yet there is still much work to be done. So we are going to add the breast pocket in it's entirety to the jacket plus the welts on the jacket front. Please have your front lining and facing pieces ready to use so you can do those ones before you do the ones on the outside. Also bring extra scrap fabric to do a practice one even before you do the lining pockets! In the meantime at home you can practice the welts as shown in the book as a reminder of the process.
Keep up the good work!
