dolman-sleeve shift series
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 6:00 PM - Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 4:30 PM (CST)
Two sessions: Wednesday, February 26 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 1 from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Sewists with basic machine knowledge are invited to create retro modern shift dresses with Claire Steinriede! These garments come together quickly and easily and are perfect for wearing with boots in the winter or with strappy summer shoes in the warmer months.
Students will begin with basic pattern templates in sizes XS-XL and use these to draft their own personally-suited patterns for sewing again and again. Those who prefer a more relaxed fit may make a zipper-less version, while those wanting a slightly more fitted look will follow Claire's instructions for installing zippers.
Participants will need to purchase/provide 2-4 yards of fabric (depending upon size), coordinating thread, red dot pattern paper, and a 22" zipper (optional). All supplies are available for purchase at Sew Memphis at a 10% class discount. Participants may bring their own machines or sign up early to rent one of four shop machines.
