50's style skirts was the make of the day.

Then it was the turn of the ladies to have a go. Using 2 metres of 44" fabric and no pattern, the ladies cut out their skirt and quickly began sewing. They all actually found out it was as simple as Alexandra had made it. The no pattern skirt had pockets, bias binding and a zip. So many skills learnt and applied in such a short space of time.

The 3 hours flew by and there were 4 beautiful 50's style skirts perfect for dancing the night away!
