Sew & Fit a Dress with Layla

Get to grips with dressmaking!

If you’re ready to get stuck in to dressmaking but would like a helping hand then Layla is here to get you started. In this class you’ll sew up a dress from start to finish over two days. You can pick from our three most popular dress patterns to sew up over a lovely stitching themed weekend; the Eve Dress (ooh that wrap!), the Betty Dress (such a classic!) or the Penny Dress (the cutest collar!).

After this class you’ll be confident in tackling any dress pattern, having picked up fitting and sewing tips from Layla along the way.

Your teacher

Layla is our resident all round teacher. She’s an expert in all things sewing & pattern cutting, and can answer any sewing question with ease. She also has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the indie pattern world and will inspire you to sew up an entire handmade wardrobe in no time.
