    This course is designed for people who want to complete a sewing project in just a day. It's suitable for beginners but we ask that you have some experience using a sewing machine.

    You’ll make this versatile soft flared dress with gentle scoop neckline, three broad pleats at the front and a little box pleat at the back.


    What you’ll learn:

    • pairing suitable fabric to a garment (we sell a small variety of end-of-line fabrics suitable for the Dolly Clothing collection).
    • how to follow a simple dress pattern and cutting out.
    • basic use of the sewing machine (bring your own or you can use one of ours).
    • stitching and neatening straight and curved seams.
    • how to create box and knife pleats.
    • how to stitch in seam pockets.


    4 people max.

    Participants get 10% of all DOLLY Dress Patterns for the duration of the course.
