Sew a Spring Dress with Beth Galvin
About the Event
ONLINE: Sew a Spring Dress:
April 5 - 26 (4 Sessions)
Tuesdays from 6:00 - 7:30pm (PST)
Looking to build your skills and make new sewing friends? Join us for a month-long, live online workshop with our expert garment instructor, Beth Galvin! This class is part formal class instruction, and part sewing social time sprinkled with helpful hints, tips, and (virtual) helping hands. And, you get videos so it's like there's always someone there to help you out. It's more fun to sew together!
In this class Beth will demonstrate and discuss 2 patterns, the Myosotis Dress by Deer & Doe and the Tracy McCalls Dress M7969. Both these dresses have a wonderful flowy feel and we love how they look great on every figure. You could even wear them with flowy pants for a boho look. You're going to look sooo cute!
During this month's meetups, you will learn how to:
- Choose your pattern size
- Make a properly fitted bodice by sewing darts
- Sew a set in sleeve
- Make beautiful, even pleats and ruffles
- Sew a placket
- Put in buttonholes
- As well as how to "hack" the pattern to make it just the way you want it!
Whichever dress you make there will be lots of good information to learn.
The Garment Sew Club meets each Tuesday when Beth will introduce a new topic or skill that will be related to the project.
Skill level: ✂️✂️
You have a few projects under your belt. You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics.
You will need to purchase the either the Tracy McCalls Dress M7969 or the Myosotis Dress pattern, but don't need to have it at the first meetup. (And if you have a similar type of shirt dress you would like to make, you could use that pattern instead!) So that you can be sure to get your pattern in time, we recommend purchasing your pattern digitally. If you've never done a PDF pattern before, we have a great tutorial on our blog. When you register for the club, you will get 15% coupon good towards supplies for the class from Stonemountain & Daughter.
