Sew a Skirt : Pencil Skirt
Time to get tricky and sew a fitted skirt with a zip!!
At this beyond beginner lesson, we will still take it slow but we will focus more on pattern cutting, construction, sewing skills and finishing garments. And walk away with a great pencil skirt, The Extra Sharp Pencil Skirt by Liesel & Co
This classic, unlined pencil skirt will have you looking sharp whenever you wear it. The skirt includes side panels, a back yoke detail, and a back walking vent. Because it has no seams, the front panel allows use of almost any patterned fabric, including bold prints. We will be sewing View A which is just-above-the-knee length with straight-cut side panels.
Skill Level: If you have taken a Sew a dress, top or pants class with us, this is perfect next step. If you have been sewing for a while and want to level up, now is the time!
