Absolutely loved this class and the end result! I have only just started sewing and I have done the 3 week beginners classes at thread den and I felt like this was a great course to continue on with for more skills! The teacher is so lovely and I would absolutely recommend this for anyone wanting to learn how to make their own cloths.

This skirt class was great to learn about the lapped zip and to make a completely new wardrobe item in just one day is always satisfying. I will be staring another one at the next sewsocial although it has been suggested that three at once is more efficient so maybe.......
