Summertime Baby Dress Class
Hearts and lace and ribbons, Oh My! Baby will be oh-so-cool in this all-machine sewn cotton confection of laces, Swiss insertion, silk ribbons and Swiss cotton batiste. This adorable dress features a fancy band hem and a matching yoke with ruffle sleeves and neckline edged in narrow lace. Make the yoke out of one sewn block and then construct the beautiful fancy band skirt bottom. The class covers several heirloom sewing techniques (lace to fabric, entredeux to ribbon, ribbon to lace, lace gathering, fabric to entredeux, and machine pinstitching (Parisian pinstitch)). You will construct the fancy band and yoke block, cut out the yokes and sew the yokes together in this class. The pattern and instructions for this baby dress in sizes 0-3 months, 6-9 or 12 months will help you finish this confection at home. Some basic handwork is needed for bias sleeve bands and entredeux self-neckband. This is a 6-hour, all machine, SAGA approved class using the best materials available.
