Suitable for beginners however if you have not touched a sewing machine or are a little rusty we do recommend having undertaken our beginners course before attempting this dress.
You will need 1.5 metres of 100% cotton for your dress and 1/2 metre of 100% cotton for your lining. You will also require a 12″ invisible/concealed zip in a coordinating colour. (These fabric requirements are up to Age 6. If you are wanting to make a dress aged 7+ please liaise with Claire for fabric quantities).
Fabrics from our shop would be perfect for this project. Please also let us know what age you wish to make and we will prepare the pattern for you ahead of class.
You will learn the following techniques, (many of which are used in making a similar dress for an adult):
Preparing & cutting a pattern
Lining a bodice
Inserting an invisible zip

I attended the little girls dress course today and had a great day. I’ve made a fabulous dress for my daughter and it wasn’t the least bit complicated to do. Claire is always so happy and smiley and you don’t feel stressed at all as she takes you through each stage of the dress at a gentle pace. My daughter loves her ‘made by mummy’ dress ????✂️????

I really enjoyed this class. I was a bit apprehensive as Id only done the 4 week intensive. I really didn’t need to be. Claire explained everything brilliantly! When its all broken down into simple steps, it nowhere near as daunting! At the end of the day I had an absolutely gorgeous dress for my best friends little girl.
