I’m so excited to announce that I will be teaching a hands-on sewing class in a couple weeks, just in time for Easter!
Ever since I released the pattern for the Big Bow Dress, I wanted to put together a local class on how to make it. I love teaching, and over the last couple weeks finally pulled together all of the details to make this limited-seat class happen. If you are driving distance from Northern Virginia, and want to make your own darling Easter dresses this year, come join the fun!
The class will be one full day session, with a delicious lunch in the middle. We will start by talking about fabric choices and actually shopping for the materials and notions. Then we will cut, construct, and finish dress before the day is through! This pattern includes some cool techniques and I can’t wait to add my own tips and tricks for making it. Not only will you learn how to make this darling dress, but all of the sewing instruction and theory taught will be applicable to future projects!
There are only 10 seats available for the Sew a Bow class, so sign up quickly if you’d like a spot! The cost for each student is $75 and includes:
The Big Bow Dress Pattern (printed for the class, and emailed PDF file)
All fabrics and notions to make the dress (we will shop the huge selection at G-Street Fabrics during the class!)
A delicious lunch and snacks
Five hours of hands-on instruction
A swag bag of local goodies
Sew a Bow is intended for experienced beginner and intermediate sewists. The skills taught will include: sewing a buttonhole, grading and under stitching seams, sewing a sleeveless dress with a lining, and inserting an invisible zipper. Students will bring their own machines to set up in the class room. Other than the machines, the class is all-inclusive.
I just love the Big Bow Dress, and think it makes a perfect Easter Dress! Here are some of the many versions that have been made with this pattern:
