CLASS IN SESSION Moss Skirt, Thursdays, November 30, December 7, and 14, 6-8:30 pm
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner, ages 18 and up.
The Moss is a semi-fitted skirt that sits slightly below the natural waist and works up well in a variety of fabrics, from denim to wool to corduroy and many fabrics in-between. Skirt features a fly front and button closure as well as a yoke at the back. If mini isn’t quite your style, add the hem band to create the longer silhouette of View B or use a second fabric for a bit of contrast. You’ll learn how to adjust a pattern to fit your body measurements, how to create a fly front zipper, and how to finish edges with a serger. Note: There may be homework in between sessions of this class.

What is an “Advanced Beginner” class at Modern Domestic?
You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
