NEW Maxine Dress Workshop | Chichester Sewing Workshop




In this new workshop with Dhurata Davies you will make a fabulous shift dress in just a day using her popular Maxine Dress pattern. You will be guided through the process of cutting and sewing to make this stylish, versatile loose fitting design. The pattern was designed to work well with a wide range of different fabrics, making it a perfect layering garment for all seasons. It features a criss-cross front detail, generous secret pockets, drop shoulder short sleeves, two neckband variations for knit fabric and a facing for woven. You can use ribbing for the neckband as well, whatever fabric you choose for the body.

The paper pattern is included in the price of the workshop so you can make it again and again. Sizing is UK 6 - 20
