In our 2-part, advanced beginner dressmaking class, students will make The Day Dress by The Avid Seamstress. The classic silhouette is the essential dress pattern to teach you necessary dressmaking skills such as darts, set-in sleeves, gathered waist, invisible zipper closure … and POCKETS! Pattern and sewing tools included at class*.
*Note: Fabric not included. Check the pattern back for fabric yardage required for your size. Bring your pre-washed and pre-cut fabric to class. To save time and space for your fellow sewists, cut your pattern out before class. We encourage you to stop into the shop before class for help cutting out your fabric if needed.
