This three lesson skirt making class is designed for those who have basic sewing skills and would like to progress to making their own clothes. This is a fantastic class where you will be able to put your skills in place, complete your project from start to finish and walk away with a new A-line skirt. Areas we cover include:
In the first session you'll will learn how to use a commercial pattern, lay, mark and pin pattern to fabric and cut out. You will learn what all the symbols mean. Handle the tools, learn the methods and practice the terminology of flat pattern cutting. You will be shown how to take your own measurements and cut your own pattern for making a skirt. Please bring along the following materials:
Sizes 8 - 14
Sizes 16 - 18
During the second session of the course you will learn a series of techniques including inserting lapped zips, hemming, machine buttonholes & using different sewing machine feet. You will start putting your skirt together, which will be ready for fitting by the end of the class.
During the last day you will be able to put all your learnt skills into place, learn how to construct a waistband, attach interfacing and complete your project walking away with a new, perfectly fitted A-line skirt made by you.
