Hello all I am sure you will enjoy this week without any homework, you all worked so hard and handed in your homework assignments on time that you deserved a break!
The class also decided they want to go ahead with the gored skirt challenge cutting the pieces on the bias to create a different look, the class has been working on this for some time now and should be ready to start this challenge this coming week. Students were given a choice to use either a plaid or create their own print by either painting it or appliqueing it on the pieces prior to sewing the skirt. It will be interesting to see what the students come up with so please bring in your pattern and fabric for this skirt. Whether or not it is lined is a personal decision, a zipper or elastic waist is also a choice based on the fabric used. Students will have two weeks to complete this task and have it graded when finished.
The final class will consist of some draping techniques, something that is not on the syllabus but will be very useful for the fashion show garment.
Have a great week!
