24 DIFFERENT SKIRTS FROM 8 BASIC SHAPES
Follow Wendy Wardâ€™s tutorials to make a wide range of stylish skirts. From 8 basic shapesâ€”circle, A-line, stretch pencil, wrap, bubble, tailored pencil, front-opening, and culottesâ€”you will learn the skills to make variations that have pockets, color blocking, gathers, ruching, darts, and much more. All the basic techniques you will need are also explained, so youâ€™ll feel confident with essentials like inserting zippers, attaching waistbands, gathering, pleats, making buttonholes, and adding linings. There are also handy hints and tips on how to take measurements and on choosing the right fabric. Skirts are the perfect first garment for beginner dressmakers, and there are some really simple designs hereâ€”the jersey pencil skirt is just two pieces of fabric with an elasticated waistband! So arm yourself with this book, some fabric, and Wendyâ€™s sewing wisdom, and youâ€™ll be on your way to updating your wardrobe with unique skirts that are a perfect fit.
