Sew your First Dress for Kids

Our next steps First Dress workshop for kids is a brilliant follow on class once you have had a little bit of basic sewing experience. It’s tailored to suit anyone from age 7+ years as we can upscaled it a bit to suit the slightly older kids or anyone with slightly more experience, we can add some trims and details if time permits.
The simpler version is a stunning dress which can be made knee length, short or even maxi length for a more sophisticated look.
We have a lovely selection of pure cotton prints to choose from also adding ribbons to tie at the shoulders and waist to finish. This dress looks great worn on its own or great styled over a t-shirt – what’s not to love. Add a pocket if you are feeling really sewing confident.
