FASHIONSKOOL proudly presents this exclusive and delightfully easy to wear style. It's an elasticated waist, just above the knee length skirt which has all-round simple box pleats, a contrast hem and a pretty trim and is set to become a firm favourite for all ages!              

This workshop is ideal for those who already know how to use a sewing machine, have completed at least one beginners level project (ie., eEasy-Level Pyjamas) and wish to further develop their machine-sewing skills.


You’ll learn how to prepare, pin and cut your fabric (using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern in your chosen size) and how to finish seams neatly, construct box pleats, add a contrast hem (with an optional trim) and make an elasticated waist casing. 


Choose from the following sizes and state your requirement when booking so that your pattern can be prepared for you:


Age 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14.
