Sewing a Sundress

ADD TO LIBRARY
Description
Intermediate | 45 min
Taught by Heather Ross
This sundress is flowy and flattering for all body types. With no armholes or closures, it’s not only comfy for warm weather, but also a great beginning sewing project. Heather will teach you how to gather the ruffled panel of the skirt, as well as how to sew with elastic thread. (The segments of this workshop that cover making the bodice and joining it to the skirt is borrowed from Heather’s Jumpsuit workshop since the process is identical. So once you've made this, you're halfway to knowing how to make the jumpsuit!)
