This month the students learnt to make Petticoat and four tucks blouse. Creating a petticoat involves cutting the fabric into panels according to the desired fullness and length. Next, the panels are sewn together. For a four-stuck blouse, the fabric is cut according to the pattern, accounting for seams and allowances. The four sections are assembled. The instructor first taught the cutting on a newspaper and then on actual cloth. After the design is cut on the clothes, it is stitched following the instructions given by the instructor.
