This skirt is a great beginner-friendly skills builder with just a few challenges. Invisible zipper? Yep, and you’ll be amazed at how easy it really is. Professional finish? We’re going to serge all of our seam edges for a crisp look. (We have the machine, don’t worry!) And there is a cute, kicky little on-seam slit to allow movement. Picture it with a pair of pointed toe flats and a chunky sweater and you’re styling! You will succeed if you have a working knowledge of basic sewing skills such as measurement, seams, pinning, ironing and laughing!

If you’ve taken a class from me in the past you know that I have tons of fun spending time finding the fabric that works with your body, your hair color and your skin tone. If you hate choosing fabric because you’re ‘just not sure’ then this is your place! The collective wisdom of the class will help you select the perfect fabric for the effect you’re looking for.

The Prep Class: Do NOT Bring Your Sewing Machine. You WILL need your skirt pattern, available at 5LM. In class we will discuss and help you finalize the following:
You WILL need your skirt pattern
Pattern Options - How do you see yourself wearing/using the skirt?
Fabric Selection for YOUR style
Fabric Length Requirements - We will adjust if your fabric has one way directionality
Zipper Requirements
Interfacing Requirements

The Homework will be to prewash, straighten and iron your fabric before class on Saturday, Nov 12.

The Saturday Skirt Class: Arrive with your machine tuned and ready to go … but don’t set it up until after we cut our fabric.
Fabric layout, marking and cutting
Seam Serging
Invisible Zipper
On-Seam Back Vent

Let’s be honest, a pencil skirt is not the best look for everyone. But if you have a body (and booty!) that can pull it off, this skirt is going to look great! It will FIT, be comfortable, and made of fabric that will flatter your body’s unique line and design
