Hello everyone! Today we’re moving on to Lesson 2 of Project #1. Hopefully you’ve purchased your pattern, fabric, and notions for your circle skirt. Thank you so much for all the positive feedback on the Lesson 1 Video. My goodness, I never knew that recording a video tutorial would be so much work. Nevertheless, I’m pleased with the outcome and I’m learning so much about video production. If I can teach just one person to sew through this Course, then the labor is worth it. I’m enjoying this so far.
I want to alert you, in advance, that the video for Lesson 2 has a few segments where the audio sounds muffled. You can still hear what I’m saying, but the change in sound will be evident. Thank you for being patient with us while we learn the do’s & don’ts of filming videos. Also, if you are viewing the video from a mobile device, you may not be able to see the text overlays I’ve inserted for corrections to a few things I say, or forget to say. I haven’t figured out why the overlays are not showing. After filming Lesson 2, I’ve learned a better way, so Lesson 3 will be different.
Lesson 2 – Video Corrections
Because the text overlays are not visible for those viewing the video from mobile devices, I want to list here what (text) you will not see on the Lesson 2 video.
- Cutting Piece #3: (@14:30.0) Piece #3 will be cut on all four sides, not as one piece. You will cut it twice as separate pieces.
- Grainlines: (@38:24.5) The Bias offers the most stretch. The Crosswise Grain offers more stretch than the Lengthwise Grain.
- Notches: (@47:27.9) Don’t forget to snip your notches.
- Pocket Piece: (@49:00.0) A link to the PDF Pocket Piece is in the description box below.

If you missed it last week, here is the PDF pocket pattern piece that you will hear about in the video. You can print it onto regular copy paper. You will need this piece if you wish to add pockets to your design. PDF Pocket Pattern Piece
