Join Jenn for this fun garment-sewing class and make a knit Maxi dress, starting with a Tee pattern. Learn lots and make a dress that takes you from late summer through the fall, effortlessly.

Join Jenn for this fun garment-sewing class and make a knit maxi dress (or dress of any length). If you’ve taken the Tee Fit class at a previous STITCHES event, your pattern pieces are ready to go; if not, Jenn will share easy fit adjustments to achieve the perfect fit. You’ll start by adding length and width at the hem to create a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette. Then learn to adjust the pattern to create a cool cap sleeve. To add even more interest, you’ll find the unique above-the-bust-seam detail is the perfect canvas for color-blocking or playing with directional prints. Sew your Maxi Dress using your serger or sewing machine, and it will take you from late summer through the fall effortlessly.
