Introduction & Overview of Skillset

Hi there, I'm sharing need, and this is my los angeles sewing classroom, so l a today's class is a pattern I design called the vintage pocket skirt. This is a beginner class. If you're ambitious, it's, also a great second project if you've already sewn one thing to your satisfaction, this is a great style if you like a more fitted look, because what we have here is a smooth waist band in the front and panels to fit the body. We're going to learn how to do some pockets and this nice flat waistband, but then in the back, there's elastic to make it a little easier to fit and also for comfort. These are some of the skills will be learning in today's class, along with how to read a pattern envelope, some pro tips for pinning and cutting, following along with the pattern instructions and learning at the end. How to do either a single fold him for thicker fabrics or double fold him for later weight fabrics. I'm pretty excited to teach you how to sew this great skirt.
