Summer Dresses Two Day Workshop



The Summer is coming and now is the time to spruce up your wardrobe ahead of the holidays!


Everyone wants to step out in style on their Summer holiday and what better way to do that than in your own tailor made dress.  This workshop will take you through the whole process, step by step, to make your own Summer Dress in a relaxed paced workshop that gives you time to create a toile if needed.  Simply select your favourite pattern from our wonderful array of summer dresses and lets get sewing!


How about making the Ada Dress,  it's a simple but striking shape and incredibly straightforward to make up. The crossover sits high enough to be comfortable but you can always add a secret press stud underneath if you prefer a bit more security


Or try the  Kate, it's a very versatile shift dress with bust darts and a slightly curved side seam to give shape. Bias binding neatens the neckline, pockets and the sleeves on Versions 1 and 3.


Perhaps Audrey is your girl? an easy-to-make dress, this swing dress features flattering princess seams, short sleeves, and much-loved pockets built into the side panels.  Flattering in all the right places this flared knee-length dress can be shortened to create a tunic if preferred with a fuss-free round neckline finished with a simple facing
