A-line Skirt Customer Makes July 12 2017

We recently held one of our very popular A-line skirt workshops and thought we'd share some of our amazing customer creations with you! This is one of our longest running workshops and always books up fast. We also have a Make Forum Facebook page where you can see more marvellous makes or use it as a platform to show off some of your own.
To start off with we have this lovely bright green skirt, it's made from one of our luxurious peppered cottons with 2 wooden printed buttons which compliment the beautiful fresh look. This was made by our very own A-line workshop Leader, Anna.

 

Peppered Cotton - Green Tea By Studio E 

Wooden Printed - Summer Floral Buttons 

Our first customer creation is this pretty patterned number! This bold floral fabric was accompanied by some of our turquoise shell buttons. The A-line skirt is a great place to start with printed fabric if you worry about pattern matching as there are not too many pieces to line up.

"Brilliant day! going to make it over and over again in different materials. The invisible zip, once you know how to do it is amazing. Once you know the tips it seems easy."

Cheryl made the skirt below using a great, lightweight Art Gallery voile that we have in store. We think it's the perfect partner for this sewing this garment.
