When Leanne and I created The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing, we did it because we wanted to teach women and girls how to make their own wardrobes. There are so many amazing pieces you can make, and it’s just not that hard!
During the holidays in particular, I love whipping up a one-of-a-kind piece that I can wear to a holiday party. During Halloween, we dedicated an entire week to handmade costumes, and now that Christmas is upon us we’re back with another full week of handmade Christmas style!
This week we’ll show you four different holiday style ideas, each created with pieces you’ll learn to make in The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing, and at the end of the week our courses will be ON SALE, so don’t miss that!
First up, the sequin skirt…

A sequin skirt is such a holiday classic, and it’s actually really easy to make! A skirt like this could be paired with basic black, white, or red, but I chose this green and blue plaid button up for a little unexpected holiday glam. A swipe of red lipstick, a stack of gold bracelets, and some black heels, and you’re ready for a party in no time.
Our online video sewing courses teach you how to use your sewing machine, measure and sew darts, insert zippers, hem a dress, create a professional neckline, and so much more. In our Beginner’s course, we teach you all the basics of sewing and then use those skills to create a cute and simple A-line skirt, like the gold sequin one I’m wearing here. Did you know that such basic skills could create such a killer holiday skirt??
The great thing about this skirt pattern is that it works for maternity and non-maternity — just add a little extra length to make sure it covers your bump and is still as long as you’d like it. The elastic waist gives you all the room you’ll need.
Leanne will be sharing another style of this same skirt tutorial on her blog tomorrow, so don’t miss it!
Both of our courses will be ON SALE this week for Black Friday through Cyber Monday! Mark your calendars, text your husbands, email your moms, or do whatever you need to do so you make sure that our guide shows up under your tree early this Christmas!
