Spring is in the air! Which means it's time to start filling up the wardrobe with cute dresses to wear with pretty cardigans. We've decided to get the ball rolling with the Hazel dress by Colette Patterns. You can sew-a-long with us on the blog over the next few weeks or join us in the studio on October 5th and finish your dress in a day.
During the sewalong/class you will learn the following:
-How to take your own measurements and choose the appropriate size
-How to put trace your pattern
-How to make alterations to your pattern
-How to lay out your pattern and cut your fabric
-How to sew your garment together
-How to sew an invisible zip
To participate in the sewalong or class you will need:

We'll get started with the basics of measuring yourself, tracing the pattern and choosing fabric next week! What are you waiting for? Go order that pattern!
