Beginning Pattern Drafting – Circle Skirt

March 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm MDT


In this introduction to pattern drafting class, students will learn basic drafting skills and will make both a skirt pattern as well as a skirt, sized to your exact measurements. Students will choose between making a mid-length half circle or full circle skirt. We will learn to draft a pattern, sew a lapped zipper with a simple waistband, and how to hem a circular hem. This is an intermediate sewing class; students must have some previous sewing experience.

This is a two-part class; the second class will be Friday, March 29th from 9:30 – 12:30. Students can choose to bring your own sewing machine or use ours. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early if you bring your own machine to allow time to set it up.

Materials: students will receive a 15%  discount on all materials purchased at Fabricate for the class.

  • Cotton fabric – a half circle skirt will require ~1.5 yds, a full circle skirt ~3.25 yds*
  • 12 in zipper
  • Petersham ribbon – a half circle skirt will require 4 yds, a full circle skirt 6 yds
  • Coordinating thread
  • 1 yd pattern paper

*Please pre-wash and dry your fabric and come to class with it pressed and ready to cut.
