Interested in attending but no sessions available that fit your schedule? Please fill out this form and we will notify you when new sessions are added!

Please note: All class registrations are final; please view our Cancellation Policy and Covid-19 Policy for more information. By registering for this workshop, you are agreeing to abide by these policies. Thank you for supporting our small business!   



Skill level requirement: this is NOT a learn to sew class; you must have sewn in the recent past, and be confident operating a sewing machine independently. See below for more info. If you're a total beginner, check out our Sewing 101 Workshops.

Join us to make a super cute Saltwater Slip Dress from Friday Pattern Co!

The Saltwater Slip is a simple slip dress with adjustable straps that can be layered or worn on its own. Choose between two length options: above the knee, and tea length (with side slits). You can also add on optional side ties to add a bit of waist shaping! Wear this slip over a tee shirt, under a sheer dress, or on its own! The pattern comes in sizes XS-7X and includes multiple cup size options (B/C and C/D). This is a pullover dress with no closures. After you sew your first dress in class, you'll want to make this easy-to-sew slip again and again!


In this two-evening workshop, you'll gain an understanding of sewing from a purchased pattern, AND you'll sew a super-cute dress, custom made to fit your body. You'll leave this class with the skills and confidence to tackle more garment sewing on your own. 


You'll learn how to:

  • Measure the body accurately to create a perfect fit
  • Work from a commercial pattern, including size selection, deciphering instructions, cutting from tissue paper pattern pieces, and more
  • Understand garment sewing basics such as proper fabric prep, pinning, cutting, ironing and trouble shooting
  • Become familiar with sewing jargon commonly found in commercial patterns
  • Cut fabric and assemble a garment the right way
  • Make bias tape for a neckline
  • Create adjustable straps 
  • Sew and attach side ties

 

This is a two-evening intensive workshop being held on the following dates:

Wednesday 9/20 at 6:30pm-9:30pm and Wednesday 9/27 at 6:30pm-9:30pm

 (students must be available to attend both dates)

 

Skill requirements: This is a beginner garment sewing workshop; you do not need to have any experience sewing clothing, but you must have basic machine-sewing skills. Our Sewing 101 class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for this class. (You can register for one of our upcoming Sewing 101 workshops here.) If you're unsure whether you have enough sewing experience for this class, please send a brief email summarizing your sewing experience to hello@brooklyncraftcompany.com.
