Beginner Garment Sewing: Skirt No. 1

Ease into the world of garment sewing with this excellent introductory class! You will learn to read, understand, and follow a printed pattern. Instructor Brandy Godsil is an experienced designer & tailor & enthusiastic teacher, excited to usher you into the wonderful world of handmade clothing!

You will be provided with a copy of the skirt pattern, and use of sewing tools and a sewing machine during class. Matching thread will be provided for use on your garment.

Students may bring their own sewing machines to use during class, if you would prefer to use your own equipment. Machines must be in good working condition. Please test your sewing machine before coming to class.

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 1/2 yards of mid-weight plain weave fabric, such as linen, cotton, or natural fiber blend. We highly recommend choosing a solid color fabric for your first garment project. You MUST wash, dry & iron your fabric before coming to class, or run the risk of shrinking your garment.
  • 1 yard of 1/2" wide elastic
