Please read:  Students must supply materials listed on confirmation and website: Scroll down to bottom of the page on the left hand side under ‘Quick Links’ and click on ‘Material Lists’ or click the link entitled, LINK HERE, located in the course description. ________________________________________________________ Materials Required: FABRIC: To know how much yardage to get, look at the back of the pattern envelope or the picture on the website. We will be making the skirt D and C. Pay attention to the width of your fabric (42” 45” 54” or 60”) as it will impact how much length to purchase. Woven, medium weight fabrics such as cotton. Inform the store that it is for garment making (different from quilt). Stay away from rayon, satin/silks, or any fabrics with prints. It is strongly recommended to wash your fabric before cutting out your pattern. Woven fabrics often shrink in length on the first wash. | ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES: Matching thread (One regular size spool (100m) is enough). ½” yard of fusible interfacing, 7” INVISIBLE zipper, fabric scissors, ball pins. | SUGGESTED: pin cushion, clippers, chalk, seam ripper.
