This class will introduce you to shirring – sewing with elastic in your bobbin to create the ultimate summer sun dress. There are so many options with this dress because it is made using YOUR BODY MEASUREMENTS ONLY, no pattern in sight. You decide on the length, with sleeves or straps or maybe a strapless version – the choice is yours.
We promise you won’t only make one!
Who is this class for?
This class is for you if you have used a sewing machine before and completed some simple projects such as simple skirts or pyjama bottoms and you feel ready to take on a slightly more complex sewing project.
This class is not for you if:
You have never used a sewing machine before - we recommend completing one of our beginners classes first.
As well as all the tea you can drink, we will provide the sewing machines, all of the tools and threads you will need to complete your projects as well as any interfacing, elastic that you will need.
Lunch is also provided on the all day class.
What do I need to bring:
You will need to bring the fabric that you need for your dress. You are free to bring this with you or we have fabric for sale in the studio. After booking we will send you an email outlining the type and amount of fabric required.
