Two Tutorials are Finished

During the Spring semester at College of DuPage, I taught Clothing Construction One.  We made a dress, Simplicity 1277, and a blouse, McCall's 6898.  Though the students finished their garments weeks ago, I did not find the time to finish mine until now.  To conclude the tutorials, here are the final photos.  The gold nail heads on the dress will be discussed in a separate post later today.

If the garment does not look familiar to you, refer back to my posts beginning 2/10/15.

A traditional button-down shirt is a great learning tool.  Here are photos of McCall's 6898.  The step-by-step tutorial began on 3/19/15.


  1. Thank you so much for your tutorials.

  2. It took a few months to finish them, but better late than never! Thanks for reading.
