Duration – 3 hours
This workshop is suitable for those with basic machine skills (able to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, sew a straight stitch).
Come and learn how to make a beautiful girl’s skirt. By choosing your own fabric you can make your own bespoke skirt for a little one/not so little one! This skirt has an elasticated waistband so no tricky fastenings to deal with. You can embellish your skirt with a trim along the hem to make it really stand out – just see the pictures below for some options.
You will learn:
- how to sew a French seam
- how to create a casing for an elastic waistband
- an easy method of inserting elastic into the waistband
- neat finishing of raw edges inside with zig zag stitch if necessary
- how to sew a simple double-fold hem
Equipment and Materials:

- Tea & Coffee included.
- Photographic handout of instructions given to take home to repeat project if desired
What you need to bring:
