Description

Over the 8 hours of this workshop, students will make an A-line skirt - now with POCKETS! Our pattern features princess seams, which enables you to feature a fabric in the centre panel if desired and pockets have been added to this design in the side front panels. The skirt is finished with a waistband and closes with an invisible zip, plus one button on the waistband.  You will use the overlockers and a one-step buttonhole foot while making this skirt. 

Our pattern waist measurement covers from a 65cm to 95cm. If you wish to make a skirt outside this range, please email us and we will grade a pattern ready for your workshop.  The skirt photographed above is a wool tartan, great for Winter - but this versatile skirt can be made from almost any woven fabric that has a bit of drape.

I attended this class and made a beautiful wool blend skirt. I was disappointed that we ran out of time to cover all of the stated learning outcomes - the girls in the class all requested skirt pockets and everyone was working on this, we did end up running out of time to cover hemming and button holes except for a quick 1 min demo. The class overall could have benefitted from a bit more structure. Otherwise it was an enjoyable class and I did end up with a lovely, well fitting skirt.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are going to extend this course length from 6 to 7 hours. 


There will be a design tweak with pockets added that fit into the side front panel created by the Princess seam.

Okay class - not for a beginner. I would say a semi experienced sewer would enjoy the class and not be overwhelmed. The instructions in the manual aren't great and you end up relying on the teacher a heap for clarification. Ended up with a almost completed skirt and no paper pattern. Not the best Thread Den class I have done. Teacher allowed us to add a pocket to the skirt at my request but I think it just wasn't possible in the time frame.
