Three skirt classes, tons of techniques!

 

Summer will officially kick off in a few short weeks, so now is a good time to start thinking about beefing up your warm-weather wardrobe.

I’m teaching three different beginner-level skirt classes this summer, each one focusing on different sewing techniques to expand your skills.

The A-Line Skirt class is chock-full of great sewing techniques. We’ll start by walking through how to make size adjustments to your pattern in order to make sure you get the fit you want. I’ll show the proper way to sew darts, and teach you how to insert an invisible zipper. We’ll use the serger to finish seams and use the edgestitch foot to create a hem. You’ll also learn how to create a waistband facing using bias tape. This class will be on Sunday, June 23rd, from 12:00 to 5:00 pm.

In the Bias-Cut Beginner Skirt class we will start by making any needed size adjustments to the pattern in order to fit your measurements. You’ll learn how to cut fabric on the bias, and how to sew french seams. I’ll also show you how to use fold-over elastic to create an elastic waistband. In three short hours you will walk away with a very cute skirt! This class will be held on Sunday, July 21st, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

It doesn’t get much more comfortable than a knit skirt, which is why they are one of my favorite things to wear. In the Easy Knit Skirt class, you will learn great techniques for sewing with knit fabric, and gain experience and confidence using a serger. Sergers are so great for sewing knits quickly and easily. I’ll also show you how to use a double needle on your sewing machine in order to create a hem with stretch. The result is a super-comfy 8-paneled gored skirt. This class will be held on Tuesday, June 25th, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.
