A choice of two styles within one workshop - these beautiful semi-circular skirts are ideal projects for those interested to start making their own clothes. Both cut from the same block, they have a separate elasticated waist casing; the 'Skater Skirt' just touches the knee and the alternative 'Dipped-back hem' option reaches mid-calf  at the back.


This workshop is ideal for those who already know how to use a sewing machine, having completed at least one beginners level project (i.e., Easy-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, turn hems and attach a separate elasticated waist casing.



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

Age 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 or 15.
