The Crossback or Apron Dress Two Day Dressmaking Workshop | Chichester Sewing Workshop
Join us for a fantastic two day workshop to make the incredibly popular Apron Dress from The Assembly Line, or the Crossback Dress from Clothkits. The Apron Dress is a workwear inspired design with straps crossing at back. The skirt is opened with back pleat and closed with buttons. It features large front pockets and button/pleat opening at back. The Assembly line pattern is included in the price of the workshop. The Clothkits Crossback Dress is more fitted, and the pattern is available to trace off during your workshop as you will be working from card blocks.
Over the two days, Maria will guide you through sewing the dress and ensure it fits you to perfection. Along the way you are guaranteed to learn all sorts to professional tips so your dress looks professionally finished.
The next course date is:
