Introduction to Dressmaking - Make our Lucy Dress
How to make a dress
In this class you’ll sew your own Lucy Dress! She's a lovely style and extremely versatile. To find out more about Lucy, take a look HERE.
We’ll show you how to:
- The basics of using an overlocker
- Sew darts
- Stitch Knife Pleats
- Insert a Concealed Zip
- Sew in a Hook and Eye
- Stitch a Hem
This pattern fits sizes 6-16. We will be making the sleeveless version in this workshop.
A small class of up to 4 people allows us to give you full tuition.
This class runs from 10.00-15.30 with a break for lunch. You can bring your own lunch or pop out to one of the many local cafes or market stalls.
You’ll need to provide...
The fabric and a matching thread. See images to work out how much material you will need.
We recommend a softer fabric for this with good drape, take a look at here for some options.
We’ll provide a zip, a hook and eye/press stud, the sewing machines, the pattern with instructions and the guidance.
You will receive the pattern prior to the class and will need to cut out your size and pieces in advance. If you need any guidance on this, pop into store or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Postage will be added at the checkout to cover shipping the pattern.
