Shift & Swing Dress Two Day Dressmaking Sewing Workshop | Chichester Sewing Workshop




Join us for a fun two day workshop to make either one of these great Clothkits dresses.

This course runs on two consecutive Mondays.

  • Monday 23rd March and Monday 30th March 2020
  • Thursday 2nd and Thursday 9th July 2020

Our Swing Dress is a trapeze shaped dress with grown on capped sleeves, deep pockets, and a button and loop opening at the back. It is such a fun make, with NO tricky sleeves, NO fiddly zip and NO darts!

Our classic shift dress should be in every discerning ladies wardrobe. It features cute cut away pockets, a zip fastening and darts for that perfect fit.

Whether made in a lightweight lawn fabric, or a heavy wool, these versatile shapes are a must for any wardrobe. Team with leggings and a long sleeve tee for winter, or go solo for an easy summer frock. Both dresses look fabulous in a funky print, or really smart in black. You choose!
