Jessica Dress Workshop



Jessica Dress Sewing Workshop

If you love the idea of sewing dresses for yourself but have been a bit nervous about starting on a larger project like this - We can help!

The Jessica Dress is a relaxed, easy-to-wear smock dress, perfect for both those sunny days styled with sandals or for the winter months when worn with tights.  She has a simple V neck shape with button front and short sleeves making it perfect for layering over a T-shirt.
