Learn to Sew a Child’s Dress
Want to sew cute children’s clothes? This class will teach you to sew an adorable little dress, even if you’ve never sewn any clothes before.
Using the Two Stitches Freda pattern, you’ll make an A-line dress with a pleated bodice, which gives a lovely swing style. The dress has a lined bodice which could be used to make the dress reversible if you wish. You can make a dress for ages 6 months to 9 years during the class.
Our sewing classes are relaxed and friendly, taking place at our beautiful studio at Holme Grange Craft Village in Wokingham, Berkshire. You’ll get to use our brand new digital Janome sewing machines and class sizes are capped at six to ensure everyone gets the time and attention they need.
