Hello ladies and congratulations on a job well done! For next week I would like you to bring in your mock ups from this past Saturday, please return them to their original look when you first tried them on. I would like to compare and analyze the similarities and differences between the adjustments from one person to the next. Sometimes, as we saw, the problem may look similar but the solution is different depending on where the "rays" point. The best way to see the solution is to analyze the problem, so this is what we will be doing as part of the next class. The tunic/dress will be finished next week by adding the neckline facing and a bias strip at the armholes. You will be creating your own strip so please do not purchase one, you will need some swimsuit elastic and a roll of "seams so soft". Please cut a couple of test pieces in the shape of a neckline and a couple in the shape of an armhole to practice adding the re-enforcements to the seam line. We will also be hemming the garments. If you like you can serge the edges of your project.
Also please bring in your drafting paper and tools to start on the next project in the afternoon, seeing you did such a FANTASTIC job this week and will be done in plenty of time to create a draft in class! And don't forget next class will start at 10:00 am to allow travel time due to the long weekend.
