About the Event

ONLINE: Prep Session, Thursday, March 23,  7:30 - 8PM

IN PERSON: Class, Sunday, March 26, 10AM - 3PM

We are going to learn how to fit and sew a simple skirt that complements all figures. It’s a great layering piece with leggings for year round wear in the Bay Area. You will learn how to make an elastic casing, how to make gathers and how to execute simple seam finishing. This class is appropriate for adventurous beginners.

To make sure that we make the best use of our time together in the studio, we are hosting a prep session to review fabric selection, finding the right size and assembling your pattern. The prep session will be held online, Thursday, March 23rd, 7:30 - 8PM. This is a great time to be able to ask questions and make sure you are all set before class. We will also send you a video of the prep session the following day so you can review the material or watch at your convenience.

Skill level: ✂️

This class is open to every skill level.
