About This Class


This class is perfect for anyone wanting to begin sewing their own clothes or just level up their dressmaking skills. I have created this class with all of the steps involved clearly on video and easy to understand.  

One of the best wardrobe basics is a simple circle skirt. They can be made to fit so many occasions and are so much simpler to make than you might think! A short miniskirt to twirl in can be a great everyday skirt or longer with a bold pattern as a gorgeous statement piece. 

But you can't make your own clothes without adding pockets! No worries there because I've made sure to add in some simple pockets that are perfect to hold a phone, keys, secrets to the universe, you know the essentials.

I've also included a workbook for you to record all your measurements, a pattern for the pocket and lots of useful info for you to begin creating your very own wardrobe.
