BRAVO Beginner Skirt Class Students!

 Another Great Sewing Class!

Butterick 5466
To the students who finished their skirts yesterday at my Haberman Fabrics Beginner Skirt class - a big congrats to a job well done. I have been teaching this beginner course for some time now and each and every time I teach it I leave happy and gratified. It is wonderful to see how happy and proud my students are at their accomplishment. And great accomplishments they are. For most the skirt is their very first project. The class teaches them a wonderful base of skills they will use throughout their sewing careers and all of them did a superb job! 

Their invisible zippers were excellent, their darts done in my reverse fashion were even and well balanced, waistbands were just right and I would have to say the fitting of the side seams could not have been any better. So BRAVO  to all and I hope to see you in another class.

As an added note, this Butterick pattern #5466 is an excellent pattern I recommend to anyone to keep as part of their personal base pattern library. As you can see it is a pretty basic and straightforward skirt that can be easily modified to replicate any ready-to-wear skirt sold in stores. It can be easily streamlined into a pencil skirt adding a kick pleat to the back. The waistline can be converted to any number of ways and of course a lining can always be added.
