CREATE YOUR OWN TIMELESS A-LINE SKIRT
Sewing level required: basic knowledge of using the sewing machine
Learn to construct and sew a timeless A-line skirt using classic tailoring techniques for cutting and finishing. This feminine cut is flattering on any body type and is the foundation for popular evening wear designs.
