Come and join us in our sunny studio for a weekend spent making Fabric Godmother’s brand new pattern, The Fleur Dress or Blouse. 

 

The Fleur dress & blouse is a pretty and versatile pattern. The playful bow ties and gathered peplum add an element of fun to this garment. Plus a secret placket, stops you showing more than you might want to between the bows! Made in a lightweight cotton or linen this is the perfect summer dress or blouse. You can also use a heavier weight fabric and wear the sleeveless version as a pinafore dress in cooler weather  
 
The Fleur dress & blouse features a bias bound neckband and optional sleeves. The tie front top means no fiddly zips or buttons holes. This pattern is designed for an advanced beginner dressmaker.  
 
The Fleur is a loose fitting dress and blouse. The waist seam sits just above your natural waist and the skirt falls loosely, stopping at low calf length. The placket is designed to stop you showing more than you want to at the centre front. We have included 2 cup sizes – a B cup and D cup, please see the 'what size should you make?' section on page 4 to see which is the right cup size for you. We have also included 2 bodice shapes – one for the version with sleeves and one for the version without. The version with sleeves only has darts in the D cup. The sleeveless version has a side bust dart in both the B and D cup to give it a better fit.  

 

The pattern is included in the price of the class. If you already have the pattern we can refund the price of the pattern. 

 

Please contact us if you would like to pay in instalments and we can discuss options.

Kay  has been sewing since she was very young. With a mother who was a dressmaker, she learnt to sew and knit from a young age. But it was many years later that she rediscovered the joy of sewing when she started her own soft furnishings business although it was dressmaking that was to become her true passion. Kay trained in a high end manufacturing company and she has taught sewing in a number of settings around Lanarkshire.Kay is a prolific sewer, creating clothes to fit her body and give her the body confidence that ready to wear cannot. She enjoys pattern cutting and creating her own bespoke designs.
