In this A Line Skirt Workshop, you will make a gorgeous skirt with POCKETS over 8 hours.
With six pattern pieces, this is a great choice if you have made a really simple garment like our Simple Shift Dress or PJ pants, or are a keen beginner excited to keep working and learning at the pace of our Sewing Basics Course.
This skirt features: princess seams, pockets, a waist band, an invisible zip and button/buttonhole on the waistband. While making the skirt you will learn to use overlockers to finish fabric edges and use interfacing to stabilise and strengthen the waistband. You'll use an invisible zip foot and one step buttonhole foot.
Options: If you are a confident experienced sewing enthusiast and want a challenge, you could cut the skirt's centre front panel from a contrasting fabric that is harder to work with, like satin or brocade.
