How to Use Your Measurement to Draft Your New Favorite Skirt with Jennifer Stern-Hasemann
Let's make a great-fitting straight-skirt pattern that you can use to sew your new favorite skirt. If you've never tried your hand at drafting a pattern, this is the perfect project for you! We’ll pair up to take a set of body measurements, use those measurements to draft a basic straight skirt pattern, then use your personal pattern to cut and sew a custom skirt muslin. You will leave class with a completed skirt pattern and muslin that fits perfectly. The Skirt Draft Workbook includes step-by-step instructions for 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 easy it is to add fullness at the hem to create an A-line or flared silhouette. Plus, enjoy a trunk show of a variety of skirts that I designed using my custom straight skirt! You'll be amazed at the different designs you can create using your new custom-fit straight-skirt pattern.
