Make a Vintage Shirt Dress using Sew Over It Patterns - 16th July

  • 55 British pounds
  • Cambria Costume House

Service Description

With 1940s and 50s influences, the Vintage Shirt Dress is a classic that will take you from season to season in style. Effortlessly chic, its feminine cut is flattering for all body shapes and sizes. Just throw this dress on for an instantly put-together look and you’re all good to go! The pattern has both a sleeved and sleeveless version as well as endless fabric options, meaning there is tonnes of scope to make this dress your own. Ever versatile, you can even go two-tone and make the bodice in one fabric and the skirt in another to give the impression of separates. With modern body sizing and revised shaping, the Vintage Shirt Dress has been updated to give it a contemporary feel, while the sweet notched collar gives it a vintage edge. A fantastic techniques-filled pattern, practise creating pleats, sewing a collar, adding facings and stitching buttonholes while you create your dress. You will need to bring 3 metres of fabric with you, slightly more if your fabric is very narrow. For the Vintage Shirt Dress we recommend choosing a light to medium weight woven fabric such as cotton, cotton lawn, seersucker, broderie anglaise, rayon, viscose, crepe or lightweight wool, along with eight 16mm buttons. This one day workshop is for advanced beginners and your workshop leader is Gillian Neath All other materials, including use of sewing machines and the Vintage Shirt Dress pattern are included. The workshop is one day and the cost is £55.
