Second last class for this group of talented individuals! It FLEW by! I can't believe how quickly the time went by and the class almost covered the whole book in this short period of time they learned how to draft a basic bodice front and back, make fitting adjustments to better sculpt the garment to the body, a man's basic front and back, set-in sleeve, two piece sleeve, raglan for knits, pants with the addition of pockets and front fly zipper PLUS adjustments! Whew that was a lot!
But there is still homework for now!
Homework is to create a muslin for a pair of pants using personal measurements and bring them to class for fitting. This will give everyone a good look at various fit issues on different bodies and how to address them. Also draft a new raglan top using personal measurements and trace the pattern pieces, they are to be brought to class for review. Next week is our last class already! As promised it is an open class after the pants fitting so we can work on drafts that are of interest to the class, you pick! I have already been asked to show some lingerie patterns or a bustier, are there any other requests?
