The Stella 1930s inspired skirt4

Learn how to make a classic slim or A-line skirt, with the options of front and/or back pleats, different lengths, and different waistlines: the perfect wardrobe staple.

The Stella 1930s inspired skirt2

The Stella skirt comes in two versions: a slim, straight skirt, or a classic A-line.  Both versions can be made in above-or-below the knee lengths, and with a single box pleat front or back, or with pleats in front and back.  Shorter versions can also be made without pleats.  The skirt can be made to sit at the natural waist, or three inches below it.

The version shown is the slim skirt cut to sit at the natural waist and just below the knee, with a front pleat only.

The Stella 1930s inspired skirt3

In this class you’ll learn how to get the fit of your skirt just right; how to sew box pleats and get them to stay sitting perfectly; how to sew darts; how to set an invisible zip; how to tape a waist and sew a grosgrain waistband; and a variety of hem finishes, depending on your fabric.

Sewing Level: Suitable for those with Low-Intermediate and higher experience.  Students should be comfortable cutting fabric and using a sewing machine, and should have some experience with garment construction.

Cost: $105 (includes the pattern)
