Sew a Lotta Dress Workshop


Dress Workshop

During this workshop you will make a lovely dress in one afternoon.

The Lotta Dress Sewing Pattern is a perfect dressmaking project for beginners, or a satisfyingly sew for more experienced stitchers. It has a blousy bodice and flared skirt, cinched in with a narrow elasticated waistline.  During this workshop we will be making the knee length woven dress with short sleeves with optional deep patch pockets.

What you will need for this workshop:

Fabric Suggestions:

Light to medium weight drapey fabrics such as chambray, viscose, double gauze, brushed cotton, crepe or cotton lawn.

- 2.5 metres of fabric at 150cm wide.

If you are unsure what size you are, we can help you measure yourself prior to the class and advise on the type of fabrics required, but please do come to the shop on another day to allow for this.

You can bring along your own fabric or purchase fabric in the shop prior to your course. All workshop attendees will receive a 10% discount on all fabrics bought and used in the workshop.  Please also note that the workshop cost includes the cost of the pattern, which you can take home with you after the class.

Please arrive at the workshop on time and with all necessary fabric and matching thread for your project.
