Skirt1The Essential Skirt – Learn How to Make the Perfect A-Line or Circle Skirt

 This is a Full Day Course


The classic A-Line & Circle skirt is a staple to every girl’s wardrobe, be it for the office or a night out, and can be fitted to flatter any shape or size. They have been in style for more than 50 years – and I’m convinced that they will still be a favourite for another 50 years from now.


For the first part of the day you will learn the essential skills of how to correctly measure up and discuss body shape analysis.  You will then use learn how to use these measurements to cut a pattern that we will supply and fit and shape the skirt to your unique requirements

The final pattern created for your unique measurements will be yours to take home and re-use for any skirt you want to make.

For the second part of the day you will make a simple calico toile using a sewing machine – or you can use your own fabric to make your skirt on the day.



For the final part of the day we will show you how your unique pattern can be the basis for over 10 skirt designs with easy modifications.

We guarantee that by the end of the day this will be your ‘go to’ item in your wardrobe and you will want to make it again and again in different fabrics.

You will need the fabric you intend to use and a colour matched zip / threads. Upon booking we can advise of fabrics and quantities. Or if you intend to make a toile to practise fitting and styles then you will need sufficient calico or medium weight cotton for making a toile, or you can purchase this from us on the day for a small charge.

Detailed workbooks covering all aspects of the training and more will be provided.


This class is suitable for beginners, but it would be helpful to have some basic knowledge of how to use a sewing machine.


Full Day Course - 10 am to 5 pm, snacks and refreshments provided, but not lunch.
