A six hour workshop making a pencil skirt.  In this workshop you will learn to draft a straight waistband, sew waist darts, insert a regular centred zip, sew a kick pleat, finish seams with the overlocker, check your fit, and hem. 

In this 6hr Pencil Skirt  Workshop, you will make a straight style skirt, which depending on your preferences can be made more curve hugging.  

There are only 2 pattern pieces! You will learn how to draft a straight waistband to finish the waist of the skirt. This is a great choice if you are looking to make your first garment and have taken our Sewing Basics Course (or similar).

This skirt features: waist darts, an invisible zip, a kick pleat and a selft drafted waistband. While making the skirt you will learn to use overlockers to finish fabric edges and use an invisible zip foot.
