What’s better than getting dressed up?  Wether you’re planning a special New Years Eve outfit, a birthday or wedding cocktail ensemble or something special just because – let us help!  Nothing feels better or more luxurious (without actually being over priced) than a dress that you just made for yourself!

Students may use patterns from the following independent pattern companies because of their excellent fit and clear instructions:

Colette
***All Colette Dress patterns are approved for this class. Ceylon is an advanced pattern and should only be used by students who have some experience making garments***

Victory Patterns

For this class, you will be using a commercial pattern to create a dress of your choice. You will learn how to make a muslin fit sample and how to make pattern adjustments to your pattern to make it custom fit, just for you.

You will need to purchase / bring all required fabrics and notions for your project with you to class. Muslin is all that is required for your very first class and is available for purchase at the studio. If you are unsure of what fabrics are appropriate you can discuss this with you instructor during your first class.

If you want to tackle a more difficult project, such as the Ceylon dress or other advanced patterns, you can do so in this class although you will likely need to register for 2 sessions and be prepared to do some sewing at home to complete it.

This class is 8 weeks long and each class is 2hrs. There is a maximum of 5 students in each class.
Course fee is $280 + HST

If you want to tackle a more difficult project, such as a jacket, tailored shirt or pants you can do so in one of these classes:  Commercial Patterns – Tailored Shirts or Commercial Patterns – Choose your Own
