Make a dress for a girl, or make one for Charity! I have been making dresses like these for years and have sent over 300 out into the world to dress girls in need.

When: Dates are available on the calendar - Please contact me if you require different dates/times.

What to bring: Depending on the size of dress. Approximately height from shoulder to desired length + 25cm. Matching cotton thread. 75-100 cm ribbon or bias binding. Extra fabric if adding pockets and or applique'.

Suitable fabrics: Cotton, Chambray, Linen, Poplin, Broderie Anglais. Polyester cotton although this isn't a very breathable fabric (and not suitable for charity dresses) Avoid slippery fabrics. A stretch fabric may be used but if you are not familiar with sewing with stretch this will make it more difficult.

* I always recommend pre-washing and ironing fabric prior to use
