This is a very easy technique that produces amazing results. We will show you how to create stretch in the fabric by sewing with elastic thread. And how to make different types of shoulder straps including rouleau loops.

The time in the session will allow you to make a small child's dress, but the techniques and skills you'll learn will transfer over to other garments for both adults and children.

You will need approximately 1m of light-weight cotton lawn or a similar fabric, but nothing too heavy or stiff, and also the chest measurement of the child you're making the dress for.

We will provide sewing thread, shirring elastic and plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you sewing.
