Handcraft Tailor Academy, Syllabus Fall 2016
Week 5 – Week 6 The waistcoat presents similar challenges to the Coat, as such the course at this stage will focus on the torso. Posture, the shape of the spine and shoulder angles will be examined and how this is translated into the pattern. Measuring for the waistcoat will be reexamined, style lengthens, openings and waistcoat details, formal and business dress styles will be studied and patterns for each will be cut in various sizes. Students will learn to fit through class demos and imagery, notes will be provided that will be added to their portfolio to be used for future reference. A model will be brought in so the students can measure, draft, cut and make a muslin fitting that will be assessed as part of their final grade.
