How to use Your Measurements to Draft Your New Favorite Skirt with Jennifer Stern-Hasemann
Let’s make a skirt pattern that you can sew into a great-fitting straight skirt. If you’ve never tried pattern drafting, this is the perfect beginning project! You'll pair-up to take a set of body measurements, then use those measurements to draft your own basic straight skirt pattern. After lunch, use your pattern to cut out and sew a custom muslin. You will leave class with your completed personal skirt pattern and perfectly fitting muslin.

The Skirt Draft Workbook
includes step-by-step instructions with a variety of waistline treatments, and how to draft them using your front and back skirt pattern pieces. If straight skirts are not your thing—no worries—see how to easily add fullness for an A-line or flared silhouette. Plus, enjoy a trunk show of a variety of skirts designed using my custom straight skirt pattern. You’ll be amazed at the many different designs you can create using your new custom-fit straight skirt pattern.
Note: Sewing machines provided for use in classroom.
