Sewing Studio
Get to know your machine and the basics of pinning, stitching, pressing and finishing as you make a pillow and a pencil skirt.

Increase your sewing savvy with fit and finishing techniques from Diana Rupp of Make Workshop. In Sewing Studio, she'll walk you through two classic patterns - an Envelope Pillow and Naughty Secretary Skirt - using methods you'll use again and again. Create them using patterns from her book Sew Everything Workshop (not included with this class), or substitute with patterns of your choice. Watch step-by-step tutorials on zipper insertion, lining a skirt, adding darts, finishing with French seams and much more.

"This was my second sewing class - the first one was an in-person class. It was exactly what I was looking for. Diana starts with the basics but includes some more advanced skills such as french seams and fitting. What I most appreciated was Diana's attention to detail. It helped me be more precise in my sewing. Even though I am a beginner, following Diana's instructions, I completed a pencil skirt that fits perfect and looks great. Thank you Diana."
