Ruffles Skirt (Made to Measure)
For those who are tired of buying ready-made patterns and having to alter to fit your size, this one’s for you. We start by taking your own body measurements. You’ll be able to construct a ruffles skirt from scratch. Instead of using ready-made paper patterns, believe it or not, this ruffles skirt is just made out of many rectangle fabric pieces. Everything is formularised and will be explained to you easily by our trainers. Comfort is key with this piece!
