Estuary Skirt: A Sew Liberated Pattern

Saturday August 27 2022 8:00 - 4:30 - Plus -
Essential Preparation Class - Thursday, August 18 5:30 - 8:00 pm

This skirt is a great beginner-friendly skills builder with a comfortable elastic back and a front button placket which you can make with buttonholes or with a faux, buttonhole-free effect. And have we mentioned those super-sized, and super-handy pockets? Make them as patch or in-seam pockets and easily adjust the length to suit your preference and height! You will succeed if you have a working knowledge of basic sewing skills such as seams, pinning, ironing and laughing!

The Prep Class: Do NOT Bring Your Sewing Machine. You WILL need your skirt pattern. 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
Button Requirements
Interfacing Requirements
Elastic Requirements (Optional for back waistline)

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

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.
