Grace Dress dressmaking class from Sew Over It

Grace Dress

Versatile, fun and fabulous, the Grace Dress will take you from season to season in style. Both the perfect summer dress and your best Christmas party outfit all in one, learn loads of new techniques as you create your new wardrobe staple.

There are two options to choose between with the Grace Dress pattern. Make it in one fabric or colour block it with a contrast bodice and hem band. You will also get the chance to make a tie to cinch the dress in at the waist, and pick the skirt length to suit your style.

The Grace Dress has a loose fitting, darted bodice with scoop neckline, a gathered skirt with optional hem band, and the choice to add in ever-functional in-seam pockets. Adding the waist tie will give you a fitted silhouette – but still leaves you with the option to loosen it should you have a big dinner on the cards!
