!This class is progressing well with all ten thousand components of a man's suit! So many pockets, so many welts! By the end of this session these ladies will not be intimidated by welts any more that's for sure!
So on Monday we are going to finish with the pockets on the jacket FINALLY! Then we go on to the vents with mitered corners on both the sleeves and back, can't wait to see how the lining bends the brain when it gets sewn into the back vents with the offset seams! It is actually very easy to install, drafting on the other hand was a real mind bender for some.
The sleeve vents are going to be a trip because there are vents on the fabric but none on the lining, it gets sewn in just like any other sleeve lining, can't wait to see that reaction!
The exams have begun some have written the biggest majority will be next Saturday in the all day session while I'm packing up my studio...... sadness :(
I will be working from home for a while although I will be taking some much needed time off once all the dust settles from the sale of the property and move. In the meantime forward and onward to graduation!
