Pattern Design: With just a few pattern pieces make a wrap skirt that is fitted at the waist and widens towards the hem, creating a very flattering shape. Our pattern features twin stitching, back waist darts, button holes with three feature buttons, and the waist is finished with a facing. Our pattern waist measurement covers from a 68cm to 103cm. If you wish to make a skirt outside this range, please email us and we will grade a pattern ready for your workshop.
Photographed Sample: Made from a mid-weight cotton drill with flower print. Our feature buttons are oversized and inside the skirt are the much smaller working buttons. To emphasise the wrap, we have top stitched with a twin needle in white.
Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: This skirt will work in a huge variety of fabrics. Through fabric choice you can make it for warmer or cooler months. Light to medium weight fabrics will have more drape and heavier weights will have more structure to the silouette. 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, large prints and fabrics with nap you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

I went to this class as a refresher to help me get back into sewing and it was perfect. A really nice, simple class that reintroduced me to using the overlocker, understitching, and sewing button holes. Jen was super helpful and patient and I left with a great skirt that I will get plenty of wear out of over Summer.
Loved this class, enjoyed the instructions and felt I knew what I was doing. I am wearing this skirt today at work!
