The Tuck-Pleated shift/smock dress

Make up a versatile wear-anywhere trans-seasonal loose shift/smock dress with short or 3/4 length raglan sleeves, side pockets, optional elasticised waist, and cunning tuck pleats which shape the neckline and sleeves.  In wool crepe, the dress is effortless winter office wear.  In rayons and cottons, it’s a cute summer frock.  Dress it up for evening in silks and satins, and wear it belted, sashed, or loose.  Make it short, to wear over leggings, knee length, or even full-length as a maxi-dress.

The easy fit and simple construction make the shift ideal for fairly new sewers, while the class will also give more advanced seamstresses  the opportunity to learn couture details, such as backstitchless top-stitching, strap-guards and invisible hems.

The Tuck-Pleated shift/smock dress

Suitable for those with low-intermediate and higher sewing experience.  Students should be comfortable cutting and handling fabric and using a sewing machine.

Cost: $130 (includes the pattern & interfacing)

Materials: Students will need to provide the fabric and notions for their dress.  A materials list will be provided on registration.
