Happenings in the Classroom

Hello A-Team!

Here is what is happening in the classes:

Patternmaking: Last Monday, we finished making our ½ size slopers. Last Wednesday, we started learning the art of making new pattern designs from our slopers. We made sure that we all had a two dart and a one dart sloper. We manipulated our one dart sloper into a French dart. We also manipulated the two dart sloper into neckline darts and made our first facing. This coming week we will be making a bateau neckline bodice with facings.

Portfolio: On Tuesday, we learned all about darts and how to gather in ratios. 3 to 1 gathers look fuller than 2 to 1 gathers. Last Thursday, we learned all about Pleats. This coming week, we will be studying closures, buttons, snaps, sequins, patches and more !!! This coming Thursday, we will be leaning about patch pockets and inseam pockets.

There is a Fashion Career Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at Mesa College. I put flyers in the classroom.

There is an Artwear Fall Show and Sale at the Al Bar Temple in Kearny Mesa. The creative use of fabric. Beads, yarn, make this show spectacular. If you want the address, I will have it in class. Just ask.
