This course is for you if you are looking for an enjoyable day out you want to build on the skills you already know, I will go through each step of this course to teach you, how to make an A-line tweed skirt. Skirt sizes are true to sizes and available in sizes 6-16. the style of the A-line skirt is to sit on your waist however you will be able to try some pre-made skirts to determine the size you would like to make.  Choose from 3 skirt lengths 17", 19"& 21" 

Skills taught on the day will include:

  • How to read pattern pieces
  • How to lay pattern pieces on your fabric 
  • How to match checks
  • How to insert an invisible zip 
  • How to line a skirt

This Workshop will be limited to a maximum of 4 ladies, this is so that everyone can be seen one to one throughout the two days.

Don't own a sewing machine... no problem you can hire one for the day with a £10 extra fee. If you would like to buy the sewing machine at the end of the day the £10 hire fee will be deducted from the cost of the machine. 

Once booked on to this course a questionnaire will be emailed across to you, this helps me prepare for the day(dietary requirements etc) I will also be sending images of tweeds available for you to choose from to create your skirt, these will need to be returned 1 week prior to the workshop.
