Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this clothing class:

Have you been searching for the perfect dress pattern but cant find it?

In this class we design a dress, make a sample, fit it then sew it out of final fabrics.

This is a follow-up class to Flat Pattern Clothing Design. In this class, you'll use the sloper blocks you made in Flat Pattern Clothing Design to create a dress of your own design.

Maybe you want a simple dress to wear everyday or a cocktail dress for special events that will turn heads. Whatever your dress dreams are we will bring them to life in this class.

Class Outline:

  1. Figure out what sort of dress you want to make - come in with pics if you can. Anastasia will help you figure it out if you can't.
  2. Pattern drafting your dress on paper based on your sloper blocks.
  3. Cutting and sewing muslin version of your dress to validate the fit and style.
  4. Make adjustments to the pattern as necessary based upon how the muslin worked.
  5. Cut & Sew the original design out of final fabrics.
  6. Celebrate in your amazing new creation!
Class includes all supplies except 5 yards muslin, 2pcs 24" invisible zipper, final garment fabrics and notions. All pattern drafting supplies can be borrowed.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out.

Our classes are limited in size (and frequently sell out!). Each person has a station with a sewing machine reserved for them, so no refunds are offered on classes. If you know you'll be missing a class in advance, contact us and we'll see if there's a seat available in a nearby session you could attend.

Refund Policy

Cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance of the class will be honored with a 95% refund. Students who cancel less than 48 hours prior to the start time of the class will receive a credit towards a future class.

In any event where a customer wants to cancel their enrollment and is eligible for a full refund, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount.
