Hide and Seek Dress
October 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$65
Instructor: Lynn Blanchard
This is the perfect dress for your girl on the go! It is darling on little girls and has a modern look for bigger girls. In our cold New England months, this dress can be worn with leggings and a jersey. The Hide and Seek Dress, by Oliver & S, is modern and classic at the same time, with two sleeve variations, top stitching and welted pockets. Without pockets it can be made as a top.
During the class you will learn step by step construction of this dress. You will also learn upgraded construction techniques, including set in sleeves, seam variations, seam finishing and proper buttonhole placement. Even if you are new to garment construction you will leave the class with a finished, or very close to finished dress. This class is intended for beginner to intermediate students. You will receive a comprehensive handout that will be a reference for you in sewing future garments.
