A student from last year came back in the class with 2 dresses she had done with the knowledge she add after attending the beginners level course.
She had learnt with us how to enlarge her block to feel comfortable, place the bust dart on the side, design her neckline and draft the basic sleeve pattern. She had completed the beginners level.
She had worked out few things we had not covered like inserting the skirt part to make a dress from an enlarged bodice with sleeves.
How to insert gathers or pleats.
She even worked out how to lower the waistline (dress number 2).
She came back to us last week willing to improve and push her skill further. She wants to know how to flare out the skirt part so she can keep the volume at the bottom without adding gathers. She wants to put the back shoulder dart in the neckline.
She is starting the advanced level one year after completing the beginner’s level and she is going to be a very busy girl for the next weeks to come….. and I am much obliged to help.
I love that kind stories.
