Who doesn’t love a denim dress? This versatile pattern allows you to make either a top or a dress. You are able to choose whether to make with sleeves or without and, if you are not into shoulder ruffles, you can omit them too! It is stylish, flattering, bang on trend and is comfortable to wear. It can be dressed up or down depending on footwear. Definitely a wardrobe staple and can be worn throughout the year.  

This fabulous dressmaking kit has been curated with young sewers in mind, it is the perfect project to build on new skills such as inserting an invisible zip and stitching gathers whilst sewing a stable fabric. If your youngster doesn’t sew this can of course be made by a friend or relative as a lovely gift.   

The 4oz lightweight denim chosen for this dressmaking kit is a great weight and is beautiful to wear and sew.  This complete project can be sewn on a regular sewing machine, it would help to have a regular zipper foot for your machine to insert the Zip but not essential – most machines come with one when buying!
