By Alison_wood @midnight_eden

sew_an_a_line_skirtTake your wardrobe into your own hands with the “Design & Sew an A-Line Skirt” Craftsy course. Taught by Deborah Moebes, author of Stitch by Stitch: Learning to Sew One Project at a Time and owner of Atlanta sewing lounge Whipstitch, this comprehensive online course will show you step-by-step how to create the always popular A-line skirt.

With this course, you’ll be able to follow along with Moebes as she shows you everything you need to know to create a figure-flattering skirt that will blend seamlessly into the rest of your wardrobe. With Moebes’ instruction, you’ll learn how to tailor your skirt using exact measurements and how to sew your garment in a style that suits you. You’ll never find a more perfect A-line skirt than the one you create using this Craftsy course.

In addition to showing you how to properly measure your skirt, you’ll also learn how to make dart pockets and add volume and support to your design. Moebes will also show you how to make multiple variations on the classic A-line skirt design so that you can create as many unique skirts as you want to expand your wardrobe. You’ll ditch the standard patterns and create your own, tailored patterns that fit your exact body shape.

The “Design & Sew an A-Line Skirt” Craftsy course will teach you exactly how to draft patterns, tailor your measurements and construct your skirt. You’ll learn how to face, interface, bias tape and include invisible zippers to make skirts that look like they were done by the pros. You’ll also learn how to slash and spread for additional skirt flow, and how to add waist support and other unique embellishments.

With over four hours of instruction broken down into easy-to-follow lessons, Moebes will guide you through the creation of a custom A-line skirt with an invisible zipper. You’ll also make an A-line skirt pattern that you can use again and again, and make a variety of hand-sewn pockets that are either lined, unlined, inseam, patch or muffin-shaped. You can use the skills learned in this course to make other skirt styles, or other sewing projects.
