Summer and pretty cotton fabrics go together like strawberries and cream. Make your little girls summer by creating gorgeous traditional sundresses. We have chosen a dress that has a shirred elastic bodice top – this will teach you a couple of extra skills rather than just creating a simple dress (a little more challenging) and allows for growing room!
The topics we aim to cover are:
- Learn how to cut accurately
- How to finish edges
- Using shirring elastic
- Attaching straps
- Different hems
Ideally you should bring along a cotton/cotton blend fabric.
- Assuming fabric widths of 115cm
- Age 2 – 50cm fabric
- Age 4 – 90cm fabric
- Age 6 -130cm fabric
- Age 8 – 140cm fabric
- 1 x 10m reel if shirring/sewing elastic
- 1 reel of thread to match or contrast your fabric
