garment series: gypsum skirt

Make this amazing transitional skirt with us! From Sew Liberated, this skirt has a ridiculously comfortable waistband and drapey pockets. Suitable for layering, wear it with a boxy top or cami and a jacket, or a sweater. You can even shorten or lengthen the pattern depending on the season.

View A has crescent-shaped pockets and instructions for French-seamed pockets and flat-felled seam finishes of the four skirt panels. For a simpler make View B is the perfect introduction to garment sewing (or just a quick sew) with the same shape as View A, but sporting only two panels and inserted side seam pockets.

Who can take this class?
This class is suitable for beginner sewists who have taken our 101 Beginner workshop or equivalent experience and who are comfortable operating a sewing machine independently

Suggested fabrics:
The Gypsum skirt is designed for woven fabrics. For View A consider rayon challis, tencel twill, silk noil or other fabric with fantastic drape. View B can handle slightly stiffer woven fabric in addition to those recommended in View A. Good options include mid-weight linen, double gauze, cotton ikats and lightweight denim.
