Yes it was a long weekend and I made the students come to class, what a mean teacher right! Well when on a deadline one must do what one must do.
Yesterday's class was amazing! The students did a great job of learning the two piece sleeve as well as the Dolman sleeve all in one class! My only problem with this class is that I blink and it's over..... I have so much fun teaching here and the students are so keen to learn that time just FLIES by, we get there and we leave with a minute in between! This has been true of all my classes in the past guess I just didn't remember how quickly the time flies by when one is having fun.
This week's homework is to create a two piece sleeve using different measurements and trace the pattern pieces, mark them with grainlines, notches etc. The men’s block was done using generic measurements, for homework draft a men’s block using personal measurements or at least different measurements than used in class.
Have a great week, Sunday's class starts at 10:00 AM and is over at 12:30 so please be prompt we have much ground to cover with the pants front and back all in one class.....
