Students will make a skirt from the Tedra skirt pattern (3 length choices) in one of our favorite books, Lotta Jansdotter's Everyday Style. In addition to practicing sewing from a pattern and operating a sewing machine, students will gain practice cutting and sewing on the bias, putting a facing in a garment, and installing a zipper.

Extra credit for this class: Making and applying patch pockets.

This is class 2 in a beginners' garment sewing series. The classes provide opportunity for practicing good sewing technique and a little "extra credit," too.

Each session will span enough class time for most students to complete the garment. Some homework will be required and may be completed at home or during Make It Sew's Thursday (5:30-8 pm) or Friday (11 am-2 pm) open sewing times.

If you are interested in this class but have never sewn before (or you don't remember much), please take a Basics class or schedule a private lesson prior to the class start.

Cost is $60. Book, fabric, and additional required or optional materials are available at Make It Sew with a 10% discount. Materials list will be provided at time of registration.
