Skirt – Design and Sew


Skirts are the perfect starting point when learning to design.  In this 3 session class, learn how to manipulate a sloper pattern so that you can create a design of your choice.  Then stitch it up to bring your creative ideas to life!  Please note that some outside of class work will be necessary depending on the complexity of your design, so you should be comfortable sewing some at home!

Instructor: Brad Mumpower

Recommended Experience Level: Intermediate to Advanced
*If you have taken the fundamentals of patternmaking course you will use your sloper pattern from that class, otherwise we have slopers available in all sizes and will have one for you to use for the class!

Supply List and Details:

You will start off by designing the type of skirt you want to make…if you would like it could be helpful to bring in pictures of things you like and/or have sketched.  There will be time allotted in the class to work on sketching your design idea with Brad, but if you would like to bring anything in to help explain the look feel free to do so.
Also – if you have any particular fabric at home you would like to use for the skirt definitely bring it in.  Otherwise, you can plan to shop once you have completed your pattern and determined the yardage that will be necessary for your skirt along with other necessary notions!  Feel free to arrive early to class and check out what Firecracker has next door and get inspired for any fabric you might want to use in the class!
Please note, if you have taken the fundamentals of patternmaking with Brad previously, you should plan to bring your sloper pattern created in that class to use!Other supplies Needed:
1 spool of all-purpose thread in any color to use for sewing up a muslin “mock-up”
enough muslin to make  your mockup – this is determined by the style you make.   You may choose to purchase muslin at Firecracker or bring from home.
Fabric and other notions needed will be determined once you have completed your pattern
