Holiday Sewing: Kids Skirt with Feature Pockets for Intermediates

About This Class

What You Will Learn

  • Using patterns; placement, tracing out and cutting out fabric
  • Inserting elastic a waist casing
  • Hemming

What You Get

  • A handmade skirt made by you!


Pattern Design: In this class students will make an elastic waist skirt with plenty of twirl.  Because EVERYTHING is better with pockets, we'll be adding top stitched feature pockets.  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.
