Learn to sew your own clothes, starting with this versatile pinafore dress. Wear it on its own or layer it with a tee, top, or a cardigan; it will become a wardrobe staple and most likely the beginning of a series of self-sewn dresses.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Make a dress to wear with everything! Using the Dress no. 1 pattern from 100 Acts of Sewing, students will learn how to modify the pattern to create a deeper hem and finish the neckline and armholes with facings. The size-inclusive pattern runs from XS to 4X. This simple sleeveless pinafore is perfect for layering or on its own in warmer weather.
