Holiday Sewing: Kids Skirt for Intermediates


Pattern Design: In this class students will make an elastic waist skirt with plenty of twirl.  The skirt is a simple design with an elastic waist and soft folds.  

Photographed Sample: Made in a medium weight woven cotton with a small percentage of stretch.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: This pattern is not suitable for knit fabrics. This pattern does not include a lining, take this into consideration when choosing your fabrics and avoid scratchy/itchy material. For directional prints or large prints you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage. You could choose a contrasting fabric for the feature pockets.

This class is only offered during the School holidays. Our school holiday program is hosted by our super talented, super nice and super fun instructors.

Vendor since 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

My daughter always enjoys the threaden classes. She loves the skirt she made and keeps wearing it. She also noted that she loves the calm environment and the people she meets.
