Shift Dress 3 weeks


New Look 6080 - C

A super stylish shift with cute pin tucks down the front and discreet darts to create a flattering shape. 

This will introduce you to how to read a commercial pattern. How to trace your size (which allows you to keep your pattern intact and used again for other sizes). Cutting out of fabric and garment construction. How to use interfacing, how to do pin-tucks and how to set in a sleeve.

Once you have made one you can make more! (and more and more and more...... but perhaps that's just me?!)

When: 3 lessons over 3 weeks Contact me to arrange a suitable time.

Extra fabric may be needed to match design or for shrinkage. I also recommend pre-washing the fabric.
