The Academy helped to organize a local sewing competition. Students worked from a basic pattern. Each student was give 2.5 meters of fabric. They were allowed to redraft the pattern to change it and bring along fabric and embellishments for their design. Each participant had 5 hours to draft, cut and sew the tunic top. Designs were evaluated for creativity, sewing construction, pattern work, fit and final appearance.
Here are some photos of the students busy at work at the local mall where the competition was held and a couple of the winning designs.
It was a fun day for everyone and we are looking forward to next year's competition.
