Make the Ruby Skirt with us!

A free pattern AND a free Stitch School Workshop

Sew Over It - Ruby Skirt Workshop

The Ruby Skirt features buttons down the front, roomy patch pockets and a wide waistband which is elasticated at the back and flat at the front. The elastic makes Ruby easy to fit and comfortable to wear, whilst the flat front makes her very flattering.

Join Rosie in this free Stitch School workshop as she takes you through the whole process of sewing up our Ruby Skirt, sharing all her hints and tips along the way.

The Ruby Skirt is a PDF Pattern available for free to all our newsletter subscribers. Sign up today to receive your personal download link and then try out the Ruby Skirt workshop to get a taste of Stitch School!


We add at least two new tutorials to Stitch School every month. We’ll be covering fun Pattern Hacks, informative techniques, answering your fitting queries and much more! You’ll get access to all of our tutorials with either of Stitch School’s subscription levels.

Sometimes you might find a pattern that’s not available in your size range. If you’re only a couple of sizes outside of the provided size range then there is a technique that you can use to grade the pattern yourself and make your very own pattern

The Grocery Bag is a great project for Confident Beginners and beyond. You’ll practice your measuring and pressing skills and also learn how to create faux mitred corners.

If you’re sewing the Grocery Bag and haven’t come across a faux mitred corner before then watch this tutorial to demystify the situation.

Sewing a collar & collar stand can seem like a rite of passage in levelling up your sewing, but can be a little bit daunting too. In this tutorial we’ve brought you an excerpt of our Intro to Sewing Shirts online masterclass, focusing on the collar of the Ultimate Shirt.


Stitch School will bring you at least six new online classes every year, whether it’s a quicker Workshop with a guided sewalong to help you sew your pattern up or an in-depth Masterclass complete with detailed downloadable guides and top tips, you’ll never be short of inspiration for what to sew. All of our online classes are free to our Premium subscribers.

The Imogen Pyjamas are designed for knit fabrics to keep you comfortable and snug in the colder months. They’re easy to sew and easy to fit, so you can make Imogen for yourself and as a gift too!

In the Stitch School online Workshop, you’ll learn how to sew up every aspect of the Imogen Pyjamas. You’ll learn how to pin and handle jerseys, which stitches to use on your sewing machine and why you’re using them, what to think about when you’re choosing your size and how to sew an impeccably neat button placket.

Taught by passionate pattern hackers, Layla and Rosie, our Intro to Pattern Hacking Masterclass will equip you with the skills and the confidence to try out some pattern hacking, and level up your sewing game. Using basic pattern drafting techniques, Layla & Rosie will walk you through the early steps of pattern drafting so you can have fun creating your own garments, without the work of drafting your own pattern block – let someone else do the hard work for you!

In this class, Layla will teach you how to draft a jersey bodice and sleeve block from your measurements and will tackle fit adjustments on her block as well as Rosie’s and Jemima’s, so you can watch the process on different body types.

Once you’ve drafted your block, Layla will also show you how to turn it into two jersey tops: a casual t-shirt with grown-on sleeves and a twist detail at the front, and a pretty square-neck top with puff sleeves.


As a Stitch School subscriber you’ll also get access to our wonderful sewing community. Join in the fun!
