We are pleased to announce the addition of an ‘a-line dress with pleat’ workshop to our sewing school programme for Spring/Summer 2016 – all our classes are held in the centre of Witney.
This is a really pretty dress, that you can easily shorten to make a fab floaty top!
In one evening you will complete one dress and increase your sewing knowledge along the way.
The pattern is not complicated, but the seams are lined with bias binding and this can be tricky to get lined up. For that reason we would recommend complete sewing novices start with our reversible dress workshop rather than this one.
If you have used a sewing machine recently, and have gotten to grips with sewing straight lines and curves, then join us for an evening learning how to read, trace and sew with clothes patterns, facing seams with bias binding and learning how to create ‘continuous bound plackets’ – you will be very proud of yourself when you have this one under your belt!
The workshop includes all the materials you need to make one dress (you can choose your fabrics from across our store) and you get a copy of the pattern to take away with you.
