Hello ladies is it just me or are these classes just flying by?! I hope everyone understands the objective of the built in bustier class; it actually merges two different methods into one actually simplifying the construction all the while making it much more comfortable to wear. This is my own method so if you try to find examples of this procedure you may be disappointed.
Anyway your homework for this week is to cut and sew together the duoplex only. Be sure you have the boning lines tailor tacked before you come to class there will not be enough time to do it in class. Also cut the power net to size and bring in all the other materials as well. We will be cutting the boning and finishing it with the tips, at least a couple of pieces so you can understand the procedure. Do not cut the twill tape or underwire casing ahead of time, the best way is to cut it as you sew it for greater accuracy. I am hoping we will have the bustier ready to attach to the lining in the following class.
So please bring into class on Thursday the following in addition to what was written above:
perhaps a piece of 2X4 about 30 cm long
a source of heat blow dryer, candle, blow torch (kidding!!!) or anything else you can think of that will shrink plastic tubing
Yes this is a sewing class!!!! Please leave the staple gun at home :)
