    We all know how good it feels when you find that perfect fitting skirt - but how about creating your own personal pattern block that you can use over and over again, making everyday a ‘good skirt day’!

    To start with, expert tutor Alison Leese, will teach you the skills behind measuring your shape correctly and then how to calculate the formulas to use flat pattern cutting to draft a basic skirt block (the starting tool for creating your own patterns) tailored to your body shape. You’ll then sew up a ‘toile’ - a simple test skirt from calico - to check your pattern fit.

    Move onto adapting your basic block to make a complete pattern for a pencil or A-line skirt, adding seam allowances and all the necessary markings.

    Armed with a pattern to make a perfectly fitting skirt, consider attending our A-LINE or PENCIL SKIRT workshop to put your pattern to use.

    As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops. Some knowledge of sewing patterns would be an added bonus but not essential.
