Sew your First Dress for Kids (next steps sewing class)

Our next steps First Dress workshop for kids is a brilliant follow-on class after you have had a little bit of basic sewing experience its tailored to suit anyone from 7 to older kids too, as we can upscale it a bit to suit the slightly older kids or 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 or above or maxi length for a more sophisticated look. And we have a lovely selection of pure cotton prints to choose from adding ribbons to tie at shoulders and waist to finish. The dress looks great worn on its own or over a t shirt what’s not to love. You can also add a pocket if you are feeling really confident.
