Hello all for this week you are to create a pleated skirt using either a plaid or solid fabric. If using a plaid you are to cut the skirt free-hand as shown in class (it is very simple to do really!) if you are using a solid draft a pattern, add the pleat allowance with the paper before cutting. The style choices for the solid colour are seen on pages 18 - 20 of the instruction book. Choose whichever speaks to you.
These skirts are not lined, they can be buttoned down the front or with a zipper or a wrap style with clasps, your choice. You have 2 weeks to complete this task, if there are any questions bring them into class next week, if you are there early we can have an informal discussion prior to the start of class. Please note I will be starting the class promptly at 7:00 pm, it is a new subject and the focus will be on the new material during class time.
