Taught by Lesley Ware
Three-time author Lesley Ware is a fashion-as-self-care advocate, a fashion designer, and an educator. This apron dress comes from her first collection that explores her family fashion history. After visiting the farmland in Kentucky where her father was born, she was inspired to create a series of modern farm girl wear. This dress is adorable and easy to make, requiring just one piece of fabric cut twice. Lesley demonstrates how to sew the dress from start to finish, including darts for shaping and pockets to stash your treasures.
