College News and Departmental Notes: Textiles and Clothing
by Departmental notes - 1916
In order to give actual experience in shop work and dressmaking to the students specializing in textiles and clothing, it had been planned last spring to send them this fall into a regular dressmaking shop in New York City for a period of seven weeks, fifteen hours a week. This plan had assumed that a small number of students would register for this work. The actual number of students, however, who enrolled this fall for this work was so large that it was not found feasible to carry out the work in a downtown dressmaking shop. Instead shop work has been established in two of the rooms in Teachers College in charge of an expert trade worker as instructor. Individual orders for dresses are executed in this shop as they would be in a business house downtown. This work is taken by the students registered in intermediate and advanced dressmaking classes.
