Meet our new lady!
The Elsie Dress joins the Sew Over It curriculum!
Elsie is the ultimate party girl! Borne out of Lisa’s desire for a graceful, grown-up party dress, she is perfect for balmy evenings in the sun, as well as those festive, wintery soirees.
With a gently curved v-neckline, flattering princess seams and a nod to Lisa’s favourite fashions of the 50s, the Elsie Dress is elegant, sophisticated and will always catch an eye.
The perfect opportunity to show off those special fabrics, Elsie shines in beautiful brocades and jazzy jacquards. She’ll need something with structure that can hold its own shape, but the brighter and more special the better! (See our specially-curated picks on our online shop.)
A great class for advanced beginners and above, there are loads of tricks to learn. Start by making adjustments to the pattern to fit your body shape, before sewing the princess-seamed bodice, constructing box pleats, and inserting the beautifully invisible zip.
We’ll send you on your way with your finished Elsie Dress and a specially-altered pattern to fit you!
