Great fun in class last night. Sketching. Frank has decided we need to be better able to capture our ideas on paper. We began to touch on things like the balance line in the fashion figure, and figure’s general sizing , the angle of shoulders and hips, etc. A good time. I am going to need a sketch pad like all the cool kids.
Work on the bustier is ongoing. I have moved to fashion fabric. I am using a navy blue speckly wool as my main fabric and then my waist design is grey satin overlayed with a navy lace. I have the front sections sewn up. This week’s goal is to get the back basted and the sides attached. After that I need some instruction on how the zip is going in and then the “fly” and buttons. I like the look of it much better than I expected to.
The next few weeks are busy and I need to minimize the mess to the sewing room (otherwise known as the dining room). Therefore, besides class work, I won’t be finishing up my ponte dress or starting anything new. I just need to focus on the critical items. Come the 19th I can make a great big mess again.
