Mave Skirt

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in June 2024, this video contains exclusive hints and tips for making the True Bias Mave Skirt.

This video is perfect if you already own a copy of the Mave sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

This video doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment.

The video has over 29 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation.

The key construction steps are covered, including how to cut drapey fabrics, three methods for creating gathers in fabric, how to sew the narrow tie, how to topstitch the waistband and much more!

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. An overlocker is used to demonstrate one of the gathering techniques in Lauren’s video, but if you don’t have one there are also two methods demonstrated on a standard sewing machine.

The Mave Skirt PDF pattern is available directly from the True Bias website and you can make use of our pattern printing service to have it printed on A0 paper (see below).
