Hi Kenneth!

Once my materials are assembled to do the buttonholes and pocket, I can sit down and accomplish this in a day? Just want to make sure I can get this done in a week's timeframe before starting the Pants Muslin class. I want to squeeze in this class if I can.

I sew slow and savor the moment though.

I'd give it a whole day, if that's what you're asking. There are three processes--the buttonhole (the shortest), the piped pocket (a little longer), and the curved pocket (the most time-consuming to learn)....

Yes, that answers my question. Maybe allow 2 days for the first two, and two days for the last one.

Are the piped pocket and buttonhole only used on coats - or are they appropriate for blouses/pants also?

These bound buttonholes work better on coats and other tailored garments. I've set them into blouse-weight fabrics, but they have interlining in them, which bulks the fabric up...

although i have sent a question through the other channel i will ask here also.
I have only just found this lesson.
Do the students make samples. or do we need to have a jacket in progress.
As i have not noticed any question posted here for some time.
I was wondering if there are many doing the class.
It is Sunday morning in Australia.
Is it to late to join on Monday our time.

The study here is making samples for now. I suggest that making the samples will give you the practice, and confidence, to use these when you decide the kind of garment you will be making.
You can join after (I believe), as we will have two more chats...
