The Couture Lace Skirt

Course fee: 360.00

Course Description:

A unique opportunity to make a guipure lace skirt. You will make a straight skirt to fit you, that features Guipure lace, mounted onto an underlined silk base and then fully lined. You will learn how to mould the lace to fit over your hips and hand insert the zip.

Full details of fabrics required and suitable patterns will be sent to you upon booking. Gupuire lace is expensive, and should ideally be mounted onto silk satin, silk charmeuse or silk dupion and underlined with silk organza prior to lining. Beautiful combinations of lace and base fabrics can be created.

Material costs:

I will have some gupuire lace available in class to purchase in limited colours. Details will be available nearer the workshop dates.
