Learn to Sew – A Knife Pleated Skirt


A one day workshop taking you step by step through the garment construction process by our expert dressmaker Jo Steele.


The 'Velma' skirt is a lovely knife pleated skirt with a deep yoke which fits nicely over the hips. There are two knife pleats at each side of the front and back. It can be made in two lengths and lined if you prefer. We have made this one knee length and added binding at the seam between the yoke and the skirt - very Ralph Lauren ! The skirt is really flattering and has a lovely 50's vibe. 





You will learn how to:

. work from a pattern

. cutting out professionally

. sewing seams and hems

. inserting a zip

. lining a garment

. attaching a yoke

. knife pleats


This one day workshop costs £70 and includes the pattern
