Please Note: You will need some basic dressmaking experience for this workshop and to be comfortable cutting out a pattern on your own.

Have you ever wanted to know how to add a lining to a garment, only to find that there are no instructions how to do this to be found in your sewing pattern? Well, why not give this workshop a try?

In this workshop, you will make the Sew Over It Ava Skirt, which can either be made as a pencil skirt or mini skirt. The pattern itself is for an unlined skirt, however we will show you how to add a lining, which includes allowing for a zip. You will then be able to use the same principals on other garments going forward, so you'll never get your skirt caught on your tights again! :)

This is a pdf only sewing pattern for UK sizes 8-20. We will print you an A0 copy off beforehand which you will need to collect from the shop or we can post it out to you. As there are so many fabrics that you can use for this skirt, we have not included any fabric in the price of this workshop - you will have to purchase your own beforehand or even use some of your neverending stash! You will be required to cut out the paper pattern and fabric before your first session, but you will cut out the lining fabric during the workshop.

    The price of the course includes:

    • Sewing pattern & printing
    • Lining fabric
    • Use of a sewing machine
    • Notions & tools
    • Tea, coffee and cake


      Anyone attending a workshop also receives a whopping 15% discount in the shop on the days of their workshop!*

      *Excludes gift vouchers and sale items.  Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer.
