The Classic Quilted French Skirt
$995.00 which includes your muslin, all materials and lunch for four days.
A deposit of $250 is due now and the balance will be invoiced 45 days before class starts.
I have always considered a quilted skirt to be a more beginner-friendly introduction to the French Jacket.
For anyone wanting to try quilting with boucle and silk, and learn hand-picked zippers and Petersham waist details, this is the perfect class for you.
Set over four days, we follow the same curriculum as the French Jacket.
Skirt samples will be available for students to try on and use as their base muslin, thus removing the need to pre-make a muslin at home.
We have a lot to accomplish in four days. We will work side by side throughout each stage; the goal is for everyone to walk out the door with a wearable jacket.
And for reference, there are numerous samples of each stage available in the studio, and I sew a skirt alongside you for demonstration purposes.
Skirt pattern - draped and prepared in the studio
A base Muslin - ready for your first day. ( I will be emailing you for your measurements)
LEVEL: This is a sub-section of skills that don’t really relate specifically to other garments; everyone will be at roughly the same level!
CLASS SIZE: SIX PEOPLE IN TOTAL
And as always, additional days are always available for those that wish to take it a little slower.
Muslin, pattern paper and basting threads. Boucles, silks, buttons and trims.
Use of all studio sewing & serger machines, irons, pressing tools, scissors, and more
Complimentary snacks and drinks throughout the day
What level should I be sewing at to take this class?
This class is an advanced beginner / intermediate class, you should be a confident sewer and must have or at least like hand sewing (there is a lot!!)
How many students are there per class?
The studio is equipped to hold 16 students comfortably, but due to the current circumstances we have a cap at 7 students for the safety of our staff and students.
How much 1-1 time will I get?
Each students will get as much time - both as a group and individually - as they need in order to construct their garment. The aim is for each student to complete their garment having fully understood each step, so they can build off their new skillset for future individual projects.
Can I bring my own sewing machine and/or notions?
Yes! If you have a sewing machine you love to use, you are welcome to bring it. If you have a machine that you do not use often and need help with, then please plan on using the studio machines.
Scissors, pins, threads, etc are all supplied but if you have your own favorites, then of course, bring those! We just ask that you label them and take full responsibility for your items while in class.
Will I finish my garment in class?
We try to make sure all projects can be completed in the time allotted unless otherwise stated when booking.
Some of the ongoing classes and workshops may have the potential for some voluntary homework or the option for extra learning but it cannot be guaranteed that any garment, item, or project will be completed in its entirety during the physical time spent in the studio.
What refreshments and snacks will be available?
Local treats, king cakes, bagels for breakfast, coffee and tea throughout the day... and a BYOB if you feel like celebrating at the end of a fun class. There is a small fridge, a Keurig, water cooler, microwave, and toaster in the studio and these can be used throughout the day.
As we are in the Quarter, there are lots of food options as well as delivery, so we will make a list of those available to you before lunchtime rolls around.
You are also welcome to bring snacks and lunch to eat at the studio if you prefer.
