Class Description

DATES AVAILABLE: Sunday 22nd August: 09.30-16.30 / Price: £75 ABOUT THIS CLASS In this class you will learn to make a classic little girl’s pinafore dress. Not only is this a beautiful design but it is also reversible giving you two dresses in one, Win Win! Through taking this class you will acquire the skills and confidence to go home and make more using different fabrics and buttons. In no time at all the young child in your life will have a whole new wardrobe of dresses. Sew Ab Fab have chosen this dress for this workshop as it is a dress for all seasons, it can be worn on its own in the summer or layered with a long sleeve top and tights for a winter version thereby making it the ultimate wardrobe staple. Having completed this dress, rather than a simpler one, you will have learned a couple of extra skills to take home – this workshop offers you the chance to challenge yourself in a safe and fun environment. Please note that you must be able to thread a sewing machine, wind on a bobbin and sew in a straight line to be able to do this course.
