To register, simply wait until a course is open, and click on any REGISTER NOW button right on this site.

When registration opens for one of the Learn with Brooks Ann courses, you'll find a link at the top and bottom of every page of this site. If you are already a Skirt Skills member and are ready to enroll in a follow-up course (Top Class or Smarty Pants), it's best to log into your account first, and then navigate to your dashboard to enroll.

If you are on the mailing list, you'll also get emails with links directly to the registration page!

Registration opens separately for each course. When course dates are set, they will be shared at the top of this page (and all over the website). Due to the personalized nature of the courses, space is limited and the course often sells out quickly. (Sessions have sold out in less than 20 minutes!)

Sign up for the mailing list to stay informed and to be notified as soon as dates are announced and registration opens. Or, check this page often! You can also follow along on Instagram for updates.

Skirt Skills, Smarty Pants, and Top Class offer a thorough and comprehensive curriculum, each with ~30 days of instruction, 15+ hours of videos, limited class size, a community of classmates, high interaction, very personal support and feedback, and unlimited ongoing access. The prices will be listed as the session dates are announced.

The upcoming session of Skirt Skills will be offered at $315.

You can pay with a credit card through your PayPal account or directly on the site (via Stripe).

Learn with Brooks Ann courses are all virtual and you can participate from anywhere at any time! Though nothing happens “live,” I aim to provide as close to an in-person experience as possible, with the added benefits of working at your own pace, in your own space. You choose when you want to share or keep to yourself.

If you ever feel like you need extra help, questions can be asked and answered anytime privately with me via email or in our private Facebook Group. I will also be available for Skype/Zoom/FaceTime and In-Studio Office Hours during the course.

Access to the course content and teacher support does not expire. Use the optional schedule as motivation or customize your own pace and take as long as you’d like. In custom sewing, slow and steady wins the race!

When the course you've enrolled in begins, each weekday, Monday through Friday, you'll receive an email with a link to that day’s lessons in the online classroom. 

You can log in, view, and download the lessons at any time after that. Once a lesson is published, enrollees enjoy unlimited ongoing access. You are more than welcome to work at your own slower pace, without following the optional daily 6 week schedule. Take all year, if you need to!

All you will need is an updated computer or device with high speed internet access so that you can stream and download videos.

If you’d like to interact with your classmates, most group conversations will happen in our private Facebook Group. The Facebook Group is a supportive learning resource that I’d love for you to be a part of, but joining is completely optional.  All you need to join is a free personal Facebook profile. Though it is a friendly environment, there is no need to “friend” anyone or to visit any other part of Facebook.

There will also be non-required feedback opportunities using Skype. Visit to learn more, set up a free account, and/or view its requirements.


All of the videos and course materials will remain on the private Course Site indefinitely and, as an enrolled member, you will have unlimited ongoing access. The videos and worksheets are also available for you to download and store offline, perfect for if you happen to be traveling or end up being too busy while the course is running. Plus, review portions of the class over and over every time you make a new skirt for years to come!

The Facebook Group can also remain active for as long as members want to continue to share and support each other. Previous Groups are still active with members enjoying the intimate sewing community they’ve created!

Once you've enrolled in a course, you'll get an email confirming your registration. You'll also have access to the main course page, where you can review the tools and supplies list.

On Orientation day, enrollees will receive access to the Course Website and a link to the (optional) private Facebook Group. Lessons will begin posting the following day to start the journey!
