Juliet is our Classic vintage inspired Dress

It has a neat little bodice that is fully lined with a centre back zip. It has a wide boat shaped neckline and a full skirt so you'll be the Belle of any ball. We will help you to alter the pattern to fit your shape and you can chose the style of skirt - gathered, semi circular or full circular.

This workshop will help you take your sewing a step further and you'll learn how to put in a concealed zip with a facing to neaten the neckline and bind the armholes to finish off your dress.

You will need to know your way round a sewing machine for this workshop and be able to sew accurate seams.

The pattern will be provided for you, so please let us know which size you'd like to make up at the time of booking. You will need to bring the fabric you want to make your dress in and a matching 22" zip. Most cotton, cotton mix, silk or satin crepe fabrics would work well for this style of dress, but remember you may need more fabric if you have a one way design on your fabric.

The workshop runs over two days to enable you to complete this project. there is also the option to stay for the afternoon on the second day to make a net petticoat to make your dress really special.

Tea, coffee and cake will help the sewing along but you may wish to bring some lunch with you or visit one of the many cafes in Stratford.
