Hello ladies! The tops are looking very nice!
You were shown how to install the cuffs and collar, how to stitch the hidden placket, you already know how to install the sleeves etc so you are good to finish the blouse at home. The hemline is to be a small rolled edge only with the hidden placket it is the only way to finish the blouse properly with the least amount of bulk at the centre front.
Next week we are going to be working on the raglan sleeve top using a stretch/knit fabric shown on pages 27 or 35. If you are not comfortable with the bare shoulders you can do a contrasting fabric or other embellishment to mimic the cut shown on these pages. I have set aside two classes for this top, one for drafting and one for sewing, so next week we can draft the top in class so minimal homework to allow time for the fashion show garment to be finished. Please don't do anything for the raglan sleeve top at home.
For next week please bring in a written description of the garments you are wearing for the fashion show along with a brief bio of yourself so I can put into the fashion show program. You can also email it to me.
Have a great week, spring is around the corner, really it is.......
