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.

- 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
