Join us in making either an A-line or pencil
skirt in your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information') and leave with a super stylish end result.
We’ll show you how to work with pattern blocks, take you step by step through how to insert a concealed zip and help you achieve a professional finish on your skirt using one of our Janome overlockers.
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.
You will need to bring the following to the workshop:
1.3m of fabric, please avoid bulky, stretchy or slippery fabrics; light to medium weight woven cotton is ideal.
A 23cm (9") concealed/invisible zip (be careful not to pick up a standard zip).
20cm of fusible interfacing.
Contact us before the course if your hip circumference measures outside the range 92cm
- 122cm so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size and so we can advise how much fabric to bring.
Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (230DC)
and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not
possible to bring
in your own machines.
