Oh My, What a Month! Hello Readers!!!
Ok, to catch you up, I am done w/this Semester (for those that are unaware, I am in Bible School & Seminary p/t for my Master's. I am in the last prerequisite Class before the Master's Program begins, and it has been 1 intense year. So I had a couple of final reports to write. In the meantime, remember (you probably don't :), but one of my blogs, I said I had something to share & it's I'm Moving! ;) It's official, and I will be closing soon into my New Condo in less than 2 weeks!!! Hurray! I Am So Excited! so I have been busy packing & packing & packing some more, (which is the reason, I havent had much time to blog) No more renting but Owning! I highly recommend you to be a Homeowner! It is a long process & I will be more than happy to share w/you a bit of the process in the next blog. Save your money so when the opportunity presents itself, you will be ready ;) You can Do it! So with the move, Soul Collections will have its own room w/more space & freedom.
Well Intermediate Students made a Pencil Skirt, Short Sleeve Woven Shirt w/Placket & Peter Pan Collar, w/the Collar Drafted by the Student Mary :) And a very Cute Gaucho Pant! We had to add to the Width of course, because these Commercial Pattern Sizes are still using Sizes that are approximately 4x smaller than the American Standard Measurements. Sew always, before Cutting the Pattern out, make sure you measure the Pattern & compare to your measurements & add to the Width if necessary. You can always take out of the Fabric w/a Dart for Shaping @ the Waist.
Victoria's Pant is not quite finished, she still has to hem it & finish the Waistband & she wanted to add Belt Loops. But Victoria tried it on & it fit well. We took in a little more of the Dart @ the Back Waist, because the fabric was gapping.
And last but certainly not least we had Flat Patternmaking as well, and Candice learned how to draft the Basic Slopers that forms the Basic Dress, which is the foundation for every Design.
I'll be back soon ;)
