Join bestselling craft book author Wendy Ward for a day of dressmaking. You will make a pull- on easy jersey skirt from her new book “A Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts” and also have a copy of the book to take away with you to make more jersey skirts and try the 7 other patterns included in the book!
This workshop is ideal for beginners and don’t be scared of sewing jersey fabrics, we’ll be using a regular sewing machine and Wendy will guide you through setting up the machine to sew stretch fabrics – it’s a lot easier than you think! There are lots of different ways to make this skirt; different lengths, adding gathering to the side seams and colour blocked panels so you will be able to make it really suit your own style.
