This is another workshop that will extend your dressmaking skills. You will learn how to cut and sew a bias piping, how to attach a waistband and facing and also how to mark and sew button holes.

It looks great in complementary printed cottons, plain linen, denim or a light-weight wool with a contrasting print, so itís perfect for any season. Our beautiful Janome sewing machine will even help you sew a decorative stitch to pick out a particular colour.

You will need approximately 1.4m for the shorter skirt and 1.7m for the longer depending on the size and print of your fabric, along with two sets of buttons to make your skirt reversible. Just pop in and ask if youíre not sure and we will be pleased to help you.

We will provide the pattern, sewing threads and plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you going, but you may wish to bring some lunch with you.
