Sew a Simple A Line Skirt with a Lapped Zip ✄
Pattern Design: Only four pattern pieces! An A-line skirt is a skirt that is fitted at the waist and top of the hips and widens towards the hem, giving the impression of the shape of a capital letter A. Our pattern features back waist darts, a side regular dress zip inserted in a laped style and the waist is finished with a facing. If you like a close fitted skirt, this is the sturdy zip for you! Our pattern waist measurement covers from a 68cm to 103cm. If you wish to make a skirt outside this range, please email us and we will grade a pattern ready for your workshop.
For a slightly more challenging A Line Skirt, you might like the A Line Skirt with Princess Seams for Intermediates.
Photographed Sample: Made in a denim, that fabric's structure accentuates the shape of this skirt.
Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: This skirt will work in a huge variety of fabrics. Through fabric choice you can make it for warmer or cooler months. Light to medium weight fabrics will have more drape and not be as structured as the denim sample. This pattern is not suitable for knit fabrics. This pattern does not include a lining, take this into consideration when choosing your fabrics and avoid scratchy/itchy material. For directional prints, large prints and fabrics with nap you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.
There are no refunds due to change of mind.
Cancellations of Bookings Policy
- If you provide notice seven or more days prior to the start of your course, you will need to pay an administration fee of $10.
- Cancellations or changes made with less than seven days notice before the start of a course, will forfeit 50% of the paid class fee.
- Cancellations or changes made less than 48 hours prior to class commencement will forfeit the full course fee paid.
If you miss the second or subsequent sessions of course, you cannot be reimbursed for that session. You are encouraged to come in and use the Sewing Lounge during hours so you hopefully still finish your project.
Transfers of your course or workshop booking to a friend or family are fine.
Classes at Thread Den frequently become fully booked, so we require full payment to be made at the time of booking to secure your place.
Payment can be made conveniently online with credit card, or at the store in cash, EFT or credit card or even via credit card over the phone.
Unfortunately, we can't tentatively hold or pencil in places without payment.
