Learn how to sew this wardrobe staple! There are so many wonderful knit wrap dress patterns out there. Pick the one that you like best and Beth will teach you how to stitch it up! This is a great opportunity to learn to sew knits while making a stylish dress that is flattering on so many figures. 

Vogue designer patterns has re-released the pattern for the iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress but you can pick any pattern as long as it is a knit wrap dress. Because this class focuses on techniques rather than being a sew-along following a specific pattern, you will learn the skills regardless of what pattern you select! 

Here are a few of our favorites!

You will learn these skills:

  • choosing pattern size
  • cutting out and sewing knits
  • how to interface knits
  • pattern markings, sewing darts and tucks
  • hem full skirts with a narrow hem
  • adjust wrap necklines for fit
  • trimming and pressing

There is a lot of sewing involved in making a dress so you might not finish during class time. The important thing is that you will leave with the skills you need so you can finish at home.

Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane  a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together.  This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignments quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops.  Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level.
