About the event

Skirt pattern making workshop- TWO DAYS Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th March 9:30-16:00 both days £75pp To book Katie on : Please note: you’ll need to bring your own sewing machine and shears.

Join me, Katie, for a weekend of pattern cutting and drafting up a basic skirt to fit your personal measurements with adaptation to making a lovely fitting A-Line skirt. As well as understanding the process to taking your own measurements and creating basic skirt blocks, we will then go into adding your own designs to your skirt. Which in this case we are doing a classic A-Line skirt. The A-Line skirt will feature a lapped zip at the side as an opening. Even if this is your first time sewing a zip in don't worry as we will go through it step-by-step!

You will be able to take these away to make adaptations for your own unique designs. Alternatively, you could use them as a blueprint to assist you in making changes to bought patterns that just don’t fit as well as you would like.

At the start of the weekend, you will receive a gift pack containing some goodies and enough calico to make a toile/mock up of your skirt. If you are speedy then feel free to bring any fabric of your own choice to make your finished skirt in. A Touch of Craft Yorkshire,, will be hosting us.

We kindly ask that you bring your sewing machines with you and and any sewing equipment such as shears.

A bit about me… I have a BA Honors degree in Fashion Design from Leeds Art University. Plus, a background of working as a Military Tailor following MoD specifications and as a technician assisting degree students to bring their wonderful creations to life!
