5 Week Dressmaking – Choose Your Dress

In this 5 week dressmaking class you decide which of our lovely dress patterns you’d like to make.  Simply choose from one of the styles below.

Simple Dress – New Look 6095

Our simple dress is based on the New Look 6095 pattern and can be made with or without sleeves and includes a zip enclosure and shape fitting darts at the back.  It’s a perfect everyday dress that can be made more sophisticated depending upon the fabric that you choose.

Bettine Dress – Tilly & The Buttons

Bettine is an easy-peasy throw-it-over-your-head dress. It has a blousy bodice with scoop neckline, kimono sleeves which hang softly around the underarm, turn-up cuffs, elasticated waistline to cinch you in and flattering tulip skirt.

The plain skirt version is a perfect project for beginners, as it’s simple to sew, with no fiddly darts, fastenings or set-in sleeves.  More experienced? Try the pocket skirt version and optional cuff tabs.

Tunic Dress – New Look 6176

Our tunic dress is made using the New Look 6176 pattern. Like our other dress styles it’s a knee high dress which can be made with or without sleeves of differing lengths and with or without pockets. This dress also has darts at the back and around the bust for added shape and a zip enclosure.
