Today we had a presentation on CV’s, Cover letters, Portfolios and internships, I found this really helpful and made me think about things that I hadn’t thought of before, it made me really think about how I should lay out my CV and the correct way of producing a cover letter, something I have never done before.
Today I finished my shorts and worked on my jacket patterns, I am pleased that I got all this done.
Today we had a technical session learning how to pattern cut a revere collar, I have been wanting to learn how to do this for a few days now and I am very happy that I know how to and have also now finished my collar for my jacket. I began to experiment with the shape yesterday but I now know how to go about it in the correct technical way.
After the lecture today I came back to the studio where I worked on finishing off my collar as well as completing my sleeve patterns, I asked for a little bit of help with how to draft a mitered sleeve pattern, and now I have my completed patterns, I will cut them out in calico tonight and construct them tomorrow.
I also began construction of my new collar and lapel, I am really happy with how this has turned out.
Before my toile review I completed my mitered sleeve, and did a few adjustments to my collar. I will have to do a few adjustments to the sleeve head as it doesn’t lay correctly or fit within the arm hole properly, but I will work on this next week.
My toile review went really well today and it has helped me a lot in the way of which direction I should take my work next, I feel that there has been a great improvement this week into the silhouette and shape and it is all starting to work a lot better together.
There are a few technical problems at the moment with the back and the sleeves but I am really with the overall look, and I know that the adjustments aren’t hard they are just a bit of fine tuning what I have already done.
