We are devoting May’s class schedule to skirts! Circle skirts, pencil skirts, study hall skirts, bias cut skirts, a-line skirts… we’ll have something for each and everyone one of you and we’re kicking off the Month of Skirts on May 4th with the wrap skirt!
Here I am modeling the sample skirt!

This class is a level 2 class – if you’ve mastered winding your bobbin and sewing a straight stitch, this class is for you! Not there yet? No worries, there’s still time to sign up for our intro class Sewing Essentials and learn the basics (here’s our class schedule!)
During the wrap skirt class we’ll be covering a few new concepts such as sewing darts, understitching and sewing a button hole. Come to the class with your fabric pretreated and your pattern pieces cut out and you’ll head home a few hours later with a great new skirt!
This wrap skirt is easy to make and easy to wear – the ties wrap underneath the skirt and tie securely at the side – no uncomfortable sliding down! Also, the overlap is nice and wide, making the skirt easy to wear and not prone to unintentional overlap flapping in the wind! With a simple slight a-line shape, the skirt works well paired with flats for a simple casual look, or add a cardigan and boots and wear it to work!
