Bespoke Petticoats

Join us to create a bespoke petticoat!  You can make a petticoat to be worn alone or as an underskirt as well as decide how full or relaxed the petticoat should be.

In this class you will learn how the number of tiers and how different fabrics affect the fullness of a petticoat. You will learn what a gathering foot is how to use it and what to do if you do not have a gathering foot. You will learn how to determine the amount of fabric needed in each tier, how to attach one tier to another and how to attach a waistband. 

If you have a gathering foot for your machine, bring it to class and we can teach you how to use it. If you are not sure, bring all of your machine presser feet and we will check them for you.

You will not finish this project during class. Please anticipate on having homework.
