About This Workshop

In this detailed series of classes, you'll make a skirt from scratch, using your own fabric or fabric bought from Opendrawer's selection. Using Simplicity New Look pattern #6843 (please buy your own pattern, fabric, and notions in advance of the first class), you'll first learn how to adjust a commercial pattern to fit your own body shape. Then, as you progress through the classes, you'll learn professional techniques for details such as darts, waist bands, zippers and hems, to ensure that your home made skirt looks even more professional than those you'd find in a shop!
