Vintage fashion dressmaking workshop
1950's dirndls and circle skirts


In this 6 hour dressmaking workshop you will make a fabulous, authentic, vintage style skirt. Circle skirts and dirndls are gloriously full and very stylish, perfect for those festive parties this season.

You will learn how to:

  • Attach a waistband, or an all in one facing, with ease.
  • Insert a zip with a professional finish.
  • Make simple adjustments to length and style.
  • Finish hems professionally.

And you will leave with your skirt, a paper pattern, and the confidence to make many more!

  1. I would so love to attend one of these, but alas, it’s a rather long swim or flap of arms for me!
    Any chance that at some point you will put something up (a video, or photos with pdf or something) for us lustfully drooling across the pond?

  2. That’s a really good idea Andrea…..I’ve been intending to make some video tutorials for some time. Perhaps that could be a project for the new year. Thank you 🙂

  3. Woo! Excellent! I look forward to seeing them!
    I am a seamstress specialising in vintage inspired clothing (I use vintage patterns and “modern” fabrics) so i’m always on the look out for ways to make life easier 🙂
    Lots of things to come in the new year, it seems!

  4. Hi Andrea, yes we are planning a very busy 2013! keep watching…..
    I love your blog by the way 🙂
