Closet Case - Dungarees or Sundress -4th & 5th July 2019 Zoom

Closet Case - Dungarees or Sundress -4th & 5th July 2019

Garments with Top Stitching are all the rage this summer - on this workshop you can chose one of two great patterns by Closet Case and add to your Summer Wardrobe.

The Fiona Sundress is a fitted button-up dress with shoulder straps, princess seams, a straight cut skirt and fetching topstitched details. Wear it on its own during warm weather months, or layer it over a t shirt and turtlenecks as the weather cools.

Choose from the bra-friendly bodice version which has a midi length skirt with side slits or the second version which has crossed straps and a low back, with a mini or below knee length skirt. All skirts and bodices are completely interchangeable so you can mix and match the Fiona of your dreams.

The Jenny Overalls are inspired by vintage work-wear, Jenny is a modern interpretation of classic overalls, sleek, functional details and a comfortable all-day-long fit.

Make a more sophisticated version of dungarees with our well-proportioned bib and optional utility pocket.  Optional details abound; mix and match the curved slash front pockets, faux fly front, single or double zipper waistband and rounded back patch pockets. To personalize even further, go all out with high contrast topstitching, or take a more minimalist approach for a clean, elegant finish.

The Closet Case pattern is included in the cost of the workshop
