Shift Dress

A little more advanced than the A-Line Skirt, come and make this beautiful, easy wearing shift dress over two weeks.

This is a great pattern that can be easily varied to get different looks. In this workshop we put more focus on getting a professional finish. You will have needed to have done either our introduction to dressmaking or the A- line skirt before completing this workshop.

You will learn how to:

  • Take your measurements
  • Read a commercial pattern
  • Make basic pattern alterations, e.g. moving a dart
  • Sew darts and seams
  • Use interfacing
  • Sew a combined facing
  • Under stitching
  • Put in a sleeve
  • Overcast (over-lock when possible)
  • Sew in a zip
  • Hem a garment
