This course is great for beginners and those with a bit more experience.
Beginners: will complete a well finished skirt, learning skills along the way such as finishing seams, inserting a zip, attaching a facing or waistband and hemming.
Experienced: will have the opportunity to develop a more challenging design which could include details such as godets, pockets or pleats and more advanced pattern manipulation techniques.
Suitable fabrics could be medium to heavy weight cotton, denim, wool or silk. (Beginners should avoid tricky fabrics like silk and jersey)
Fabric quantity will vary according to length and flare and whether there is a pattern direction. We are here to help if you need advice.
