Hello ladies and job well done today! You were given a lot of information today and a lot of homework to do!
You were asked to do all the padstitching on your blazers, add the twill tape to the roll line as well as the centre front seam line just to the edge of the interfacing, leaving all the seam allowance free, using an catchstitch as shown in class. The point of this is to give a nice sharp edge to the centre front and hold the interfacing in place without actually machine stitching it down.
You are also to cut out the pocket pieces as discussed in class, they will be added to the welts next week. Like I said in class the real trick is to get the second side exactly the same as the first side for the jacket to look right, so good luck with the other welt! Next week we will be sewing the blazer together so please have all the pieces cut out and marked with all the necessary markings from the pattern pieces.
Please bring in some tailor's pride or felt pieces as well as the twill tape (1 cm) to tailor the armhole and sleeves, all the lining pieces as well.
Have a great week! don't forget to register for the Jan. 30 class
