Make yourself a dress. Not just any dress, but an advanced level dress that will impress everyone! This is seamstress level sewing. You choose your pattern- (here are a few suggestions) Upton, Lenox, Holyoke, Kalle, Alder, Claudette, Myrna, or Penny dress patterns. Skills covered in this class include: darts, gathers, pleats, zippers, buttonholes, collars, yokes, facings, linings, set-in sleeves, seam finishes, and hemming.

Materials: A materials list will be emailed to you prior to class.

You must purchase, download, and print out the pdf pattern before class. Please have the printed pattern cut out & taped together.

(Optional) We recommend having your pattern printed out in large format by PDF Plotting

Skill Level: Intermediate/ Advanced

Prerequisites: Sewing 101, Serger 101, or entire Sewing Skills series. Must be comfortable using a rotary cutter and have previously completed a multi-piece commercial pattern project.
