Hello everyone! We’re moving on to Project #3. If you are just joining the Sewing Course, please start with Projects #1 & #2 before starting this project. For those of you who have been following along, you will also learn three new techniques:
- Installing Interfacing;
- Sewing & Pressing Darts;
- Using a Tailor’s Ham (Pressing Ham)
This is another pattern that you can sew up in no time, once you’ve mastered the basic techniques.

The straight skirt is a very versatile wardrobe piece. It may be worn either as a separate piece of clothing or as part of a suit. There is some debate as to the proper name for this type of skirt. Some call it a pencil skirt, while others refer to it as a tube skirt. I’ve read that the straight skirt is shorter than the pencil skirt and doesn’t have a slit or vent. Also, I’ve heard that the pencil skirt is constructed of knit fabric. I’m not quite clear, as there are so many opinions, therefore, I’m calling this version a straight skirt. If you have knowledge to share with me on this one, I welcome it.
