Knit Dress - Part 1/2

  • The Sewing Room 130 South Clinton Street Doylestown, PA, 18901 United States (map)

Let's make a super comfortable & ACTUALLY wearable knit dress.  Pair with leggings or boots for the winter!  (Adult Class)

Skill Level:  Advanced beginner

Learn to work with knits!  Please don't be afraid!  They don't bite.  Using a printed dress pattern and a stable knit, we'll be making a long or short sleeve knit dress.  This is a perfect class if you've never worked with knits before.  We'll be using only a standard sewing machine to create all the construction necessary.  No fancy machines needed here!  

Options for contrast yoke & button detail.

Requirements:   2 yd cotton jersey knit or similar, coordinating thread, jersey/ballpoint needles, pattern purchase optional

Cost:  $65.00/person + supplies/materials (cost is for both sessions)

Please let us know if you will be bringing your own machine or using one of the store's at no cost.  Please email or call the store to reserve your spot; space is limited.  Thanks!
