The Linton Couture Skirt - Starts 21st June 2023

Not available

On this skirt workshop learn the Couture techniques needed to work with a fabric such as Linton Tweed.

Learn how to stabilise this tricky fabric by quilting the lining, insert a zip by hand and create beautiful hanging loops like those found on designer garments.

This is a pencil skirt with a waistband and back zip, the darts add shape and the side seams are placed slightly towards the back to give an elegant line and come in slightly at the hem.

The pattern is included in the workshop price

What You Need To Bring: The Sewing Room is fully equipped with Janome Sewing Machines and Overlockers as well as all the tools you need to complete your project.  You are very welcome to bring your own machine and sewing box if you wish.

Materials Needed: In Couture Sewing the fabric amounts are worked out a little differently to allow for the fabric being more difficult to work with. 

To decide how much you need, measure the finished length you would like your skirt to be and add 10cm (4"), if your fabric is 150cm (60") you will need this amount plus 10cm (4") for the waistband.

You will need the same amount of lining plus a 20cm (8") zip and matching threads.  You will also need 1m of calico for your toile

Ideal fabrics for this workshop would be Linton Tweed and Silk Crepe de Chine - if you would like any advice on fabrics please do get in touch
