garment 201 series: basic pattern drafting - half circle skirt

You took Nancy's Intro to Pattern Drafting class and LOVED IT... and want more! We've got you covered in her next Pattern Drafting series featuring the Half Circle Skirt. 

In this 3-hour class, students will draft a half circle skirt with a waistband using their measurements taken at the beginning of class. The pattern will be drafted with a center back seam, side seams, and a bias cut. This class reinforces the skills learned in our Intro to Pattern Drafting class, while introducing new, useful skills to take your pattern drafting capabilities to the next level.

Depending on your fabric choice, you can achieve different looks with your skirt:  choose a rayon to make a flowy skirt with generous drape, or a woven fabric such as chambray, denim or linen for a more structured look. 

Note:  This class is for drafting of the pattern ONLY; students will construct the garment at home, or may register for one of our Garment Lab sessions to sew with instructor oversight.

This class is suitable for intermediate students who have completed our Intro to Pattern Drafting class or have previous basic pattern drafting knowledge and experience.
