About This Class

Sewing is an empowering, useful and exciting hobby. Creating your own handmade wardrobe allows you to make clothing that you love and feel proud of. You don’t need to be a pro to be able to make beautiful clothes, you can jump in with a few simple skills and make gorgeous pieces that you’ll adore and wear for years to come. Join this class and learn a handful of useful drafting and sewing skills as we create a beautiful wrap circle  skirt. 

This skirt can be sewn in four easy steps, and is a great project for someone looking to build on their sewing skills or for an more experience sewer who is looking for a simple, stylish project. 

  • You will learn how to draft the skirt pattern based on your waist measurement.
  • We’ll discuss how to choose a fabric that is suitable for this skirt.
  • I’ll walk you through a few basic sewing skills that will make up the construction steps of this skirt: Seam allowance, finishing edges, ease stitching, hemming a curved edge, and sewing a waistband.

All you need to get started are a few basic tools,  a sewing machine and a basic understanding of how to operate it. Let's get started!

Clear instructions to make a beautiful skirt. Calm teacher, nice style.
This was a great class. I love that she went from drafting the pattern to sewing it up. She took the time to go over fabric options and the technical things that many design and sewing teachers tend to skip over.
Great course!. Kristiann explains every step carefully. Even if you aren't planning to sew the skirt it is worth watching the videos. I have learnt some new techniques.
