Summer Skirts and Why You Need Them

Skirts were what inspired me to sew. They are simple and flattering. I wear tons of them, and making them is still a great sewing learning opportunity for me! From linings, facing, zippers, knits, gathers, ruffles, fit and patterns–skirt classes cover loads of sewing basics, and chances are you will also LOVE the finished product. We offer a lot of wonderful skirt classes with many of the above skills included. All of them are delightfully wearable for summer!
