Ok so these two ladies are amazing! They just don't stop! Today they did 6 drafts plus cut a very finicky plaid skirt! On the list was to cut a plaid skirt in a special manner so the plaid would join all six gores in a particular method changing the plaid into diamonds on all six gores matching the squares perfectly at the seams. It's a simple skirt to draft using only one main pattern piece and tracing the rest but it's the placement on the fabric that counts as they learned today.
Next was the empire cut with asymmetrical neckline which they had drafted at home and I checked the pieces. Following that were the dreaded raglan sleeves! I am not a fan probably because I have had to draft so many that I'm sick of them but I still make and teach them. So the first was a simple raglan for wovens, next came the raglan top with a pleat down the front princess lines ending in a point with a self-facing; that was only the morning!
In the afternoon we continued with the raglans by doing the shaping, so that was completed in very short order; forward and onward to watching a power point on the raglan sleeves, well that was inspiration to draft a coat with a hammer sleeve!
Whew that was a lot of work!! Kudos ladies for being such troopers, keep up the good work!
