She will be teaching us to make this super cute Made to Measure Skirt:
|In Tsuru with contrast band||In Oliver + S without contrast band.|
This fun and flirty gathered skirt has a sophisticated flat-fronted waistband, with an elastic casing in the back for ease of fit. Also, no zippers to fight with! It has pockets, and who doesn't love/need pockets? If there is time, Rae will also teach us how to add the contrast band, a skill that will surely lend itself to many future dressmaking projects.
In the class you will be making a pattern using your own measurements on Pellon 830 pattern tracing material
a pattern that is
not only just your size but yours to keep, so that you may make many adorable skirts on your own afterwards.
Once you are registered, you will need to bring your sewing machine, 1 inch elastic, and 2-2.5 yards of light to medium weight fabric (some types of light weight fabrics we carry are voile
; quilting cotton
is a medium weight fabric), and coordinating thread to the class. If you want a contrast band, 1/2-1 yard of fabric will do. The elastic and tracing material will be available for purchase at the store. There are more details on the classes page, just click on the book now button below!
