This gorgeous pleated skirt is a Simplicity pattern. It can be worn on the waist or the hip. During this 6 hour workshop, you will be taken through every stage of cutting and making your skirt to a high standard. You will learn how to choose your correct size, understand a pattern, how to cut out using a pattern, garment construction, inserting a lapped zip, attaching a waistband and hemming a skirt. It is a fantastic first garment project.
The Skirt Workshop is a 6 hour workshop. You will need to choose two MIXER workshops dates which suit you. The Mixer Workshops are 3 hours. You will need to pay the £10 difference on the day.
