Ready to sew your first garment but don’t want to commit to a fitted style? In this class you will have a choice to either make an on trend gathered skirt or a pajama pant, both with an elastic waist and perfect for the beginner sewist. We will teach you how to choose the right pattern size for your body, read the instructions given with the pattern (because sewing has it’s own language), cut out your pattern and fabric, then walk you through the steps to complete your skirt or pant.
Skirt - McCall’s pattern #M8066 - Material list:
I suggest that you choose either View A or B. (please note that if you choose view C, you will need to do some of the work at home).
-purchase woven cotton fabric (amount is located on the back of the pattern, based on the view and width of fabric) and notions like thread and elastic.
-special sewing techniques that you will learn are setting in a half elastic waistband, shirring/gathering and hemming.
Please note that when you purchase this pattern it comes in two size sets, (XS - M) or (L - XXL)
