What a day yesterday! Lots of driving for yours truly but all worth it for this class! We did the pants draft starting with the front using generic measurements, went on to the front using personal measurements and then the back. We were almost done when we were very unceremoniously asked to finish there was someone waiting for the space for a birthday party! We were so engrossed in our work we lost track of time, so we packed up and left, what could we do? We are going to have a longer class next week at least that was the plan from the beginning.....
Homework is to complete the pants back using personal measurements as shown on page 11 in the instruction book, cut out and sew a mock up using personal measurements to fit the following week. Create a new front and back draft using different measurements if possible sew together mock up and fit the wearer. If anyone can bring a fit model in for the next class that would be very helpful in understanding how to fit the body for everyone, this is all pending the completion of the pants back as I said in the email I sent. No worries we will make it work.....
