Sew a Skirt: Pencil Skirt

Sew a Skirt: Pencil Skirt

Regular price $175.00 Sale

Time to get tricky and sew a fitted skirt with a zip!!

At this beyond beginner lesson, we will still take it slow but we will focus more on pattern cutting, construction, sewing skills and finishing garments.  And walk away with a great pencil skirt, The Extra Sharp Pencil Skirt by Liesel & Co

This classic, unlined pencil skirt will have you looking sharp whenever you wear it. The skirt includes side panels, a back yoke detail, and a back walking vent. Because it has no seams, the front panel allows use of almost any patterned fabric, including bold prints. We will be sewing View A which is just-above-the-knee length with straight-cut side panels.

Sizes 0-20.
