                 TYPICAL FAULTS IN         MAKING-UP                   i69
    All this is seen readily enough when the attention of the class is directed
to it, but the direction should be definite and systematic, covering the
various

possibilities in mistakes. 
    Fortunately, however, they are well spread over the different stages
in 
an ordinary school course. Many of them the skilful teacher anticipates 
and avoids by methodical class-teaching on much that is outside the routine
lessons on actual sewing, never forgetting at the same time, however, that
the child's own judgment and discretion must be called into play more and
more, and that there can be no progress without the attendant trials of strength
and occasional blunders.
