ready to get started with your first fashion project? we’ll show you how to make a cute and very wearable naughty secretary skirt. you’ll shop for fabric and gather a basic sewing kit together before class, and then be taught how to layout, cut, and follow a pattern, as well as basic sewing techniques like darts, seam finishing, installing an invisible zipper and how to handstitch a couture-quality hem. elementary tailoring tricks will also be demonstrated to adjust the pattern to fit your body if need be.

note: this is a project-based workshop. please be acquainted with winding a bobbin and threading a machine before signing up. an intro class (see above) will teach you all you need to know! this class can also be taken as part of the fashion lab series at a discount.
