Learn how to make a skirt in multiple silhouettes and fit it perfectly to your body. In this class, Aurora Sisneros will show you how to properly measure yourself, then build a pattern that can be used over and over again.

This pattern not only encompasses waist, hips, and desired length, but takes into account that women have curves. Learn to create and sew darts on both the front and the back for the perfect fit. Finally, you can add a waistband to your skirt, or add a facing for a simple, unburdened look.
