Make a Skirt

Make your choice of a wrap, tulip shape, 1950’s style pleated or elasticated waist skirt in a day, using just your measurements – no paper pattern required!

Please be able to thread a sewing machine and sew a straight line.

Learn how to draught straight onto cloth and sew waistbands, seams, hems and depending on which style you choose gathers, pleats, pockets or a concealed zip……

Once you’ve mastered this patternless ’freehand’ cutting technique you’ll be able to go on to make more skirts in any size or length at home.

2 x sessions 22 & 29 January 2019 Please note you will need to attend both sessions to complete the skirt
