Frances Knit Dress Workshop - 2 Sessions: April 27th & April 28th

Learn to make this fun and versatile dress or top from the pattern designer herself!

FRANCES is the ultimate modular knit dress and top pattern that offers many style options, allowing you to make a collection of beautiful basics. In this workshop, you can choose a slim fitting hip-length top, or a dress with a half circle skirt and built in side-seam pockets.

You can also choose from four neckline options: crew neck, turtle neck, or a scoop neck with a high or medium back. Four sleeve options are also given: cap, elbow, three-quarter, and full-length. (We are not recommending the low scoop back with tie for this workshop because it takes a little more time, but once you master the pattern in the workshop, you'll be able to make future versions with the scoop back). Mix and match the pattern pieces to create your own look.

This pattern can be sewn on a serger or regular sewing machine. You will be sewing with knits on a sewing machine in this workshop.

The class includes the pattern: printed large format sheets and pdf instructions with details

These bamboo/rayon knits are perfect for this project!
