Thank you for your feedback and words of encouragement. I have been sewing. I am not an expert but have also taken classes in garment construction. I am not taking these classes in order to become a designer. I am doing it as a hobby. The school I attend is a real great school and as I had indicated in my earlier e-mail, I have had this teacher before. She is very good at what she does. I took this pattern drafting course before and could not stand the other teacher who taught it. The class was so bad that I did not even go to the first test and did not go back. Of course I did fail. This teacher lets us go along with her. The unfortunate thing for me is that by the time I am up to where she was, she is onto the next step. My teacher did have a chat with me and did say that sometimes I may be trying to analysis things to much. She said that if you look at the way the patterns are drafted, it is not that hard. I realize what she is saying but she has been working in this type of field for years and knows how to draft a pattern. She has told us that she doesn’t even look at how Armstrong does hers. I know I have a tendancy of being over anxious and then cannot think logically. I am going to keep going to classes right until the end. If I fail, then I will repeat it again. I was reading Armstrong’s book and someone stated in the book that there may be mistakes made in the book. I thought I read a few threads readers say that some of the steps being taken to complete some of the patterns were incorrect. How can someone as inexperienced as myself do it right if it may be wrong in the book? One example (I may be wrong) is on page 241 of Armstrong’s book. In figure 3 and 4, it shows two centre front pieces. Should it not show the back and front centre pieces? From page 240 to 241 it expalins how to do a Basic Flared Skirt. How does a person with no drafting pattern experience know that may be the creater of this drawing made a mistake? I know it is common sense to figure it out but when you are a beginner, you go by the words and pictures shown from someone who has had experienced and who wrote the book. Am I correct in my thinking?
