Skirt Assembly on April 30th at 2:30pm
We've received quite a few inquiries and requests for classes and skills based on making a basic zippered skirt. In response, we are be offering this 2 hour course on how to assemble a basic zippered skirt. We'll address some neat tricks, including demystifying zipper insertion, how to get the right hem from the start and more. This course is offered via 2 classes in succession.
We recommend you have taken Edge Finishes and Hems, and Simple Seams for best results before taking this 2 part course. But if you are feeling adventurous, then let's sew!
