What to expect...

The Skirt Making Course is designed to further your dressmaking skills. Incorporating skills you have already learned and adding more along the way! You will spend the day making an unlined skirt with a zip fastening. Starting with your pattern, you will learn to change a pattern to fit you perfectly. Lay and cut out your pattern and transferring markings onto your fabric. You will learn a range of sewing techniques which are easily transferable when embarking on more complex patterns from inserting a zip to adding a waistband and working with interfacings. You will also see how to adapt a simple skirt pattern into an A-Line, tulip or bubble skirt! This is the perfect course if you have already been on our Shift Dress Session or Intermediate/Zips & Fastenings Session or if you have sewn before. You need to be confident in sewing a simple straight stitch and want to master the next techniques you avoid if choosing a pattern/garment to make. You will go home with a skirt which is handmade by you, and fits perfectly. You also get to keep your own pattern and hand-outs which detail everything you have learnt, so you after the course you will be able to refer back to them and make more!
