This is perfect for those who have completed a ‘Learn to Sew’ workshop and would like to tackle something a bit more complicated.

You’ll leave with a pretty A-Line skirt made to measure, using a commercial pattern. We’ll talk about pattern-cutting, fabrics and all the terminology used. You’ll cover lots of techniques including: Inserting a zip, a waistband, sewing in darts and working on seams and hems. You need to know how to thread up and use the sewing machine, but don’t need to be a whiz at anything too technical.

Please bring 1.5m fabric for sizes up to 12, and 2m fabric for sizes 14-18. Nothing too flimsy please - light to medium weight cottons or linens are perfect. Please also bring a 7 inch zip to match your fabric. Oh, and a packed lunch! Please just get in touch if you have any questions regarding sizes.
