Vintage Sewing Weekend - 20th & 21st June 2020 Zoom

Vintage Sewing Weekend - 20th & 21st June 2020

For this workshop we will be using the lovely Vintage Style patterns from Til The Sun Goes Down - choose from 

The Ritz Pleat DressThe Ritz Pleat Dress - the perfect dress for almost any occasion, depending on the fabric you choose. The key feature is the flattering pleats that drape from shoulder to centre front and the bias skirt that falls easily over the waist and hips. The pattern has 3 sleeve versions - Long straight, elbow length with/without gathers and a short fluted one. The dress comes to just below the knee with the option of making it full length.

The Lana Tea DressA perfect teadress that is so versatile you'll make it again and again. It has a look that's a little 1930's but also something of the 1940's. There are 3 versions included in the pattern. Version A has a gathered sleeve head and a pleat into it's cuff. Version B has a gathered sleeve head with a fluted hem. Version C has a long straight sleeve. Version D has a long skirt. The skirt is cut on the bias and gently skims the waist and hips making it very easy to wear.

The Molly DressA  simple but oh so lovely little number with great versatility. A bias cut skirt creates a draped , fluid skirt with lots of swing. The slightly above natural waistline seam, gives the look of longer legs and a smaller waist. Gentle gathers from a piped shoulder yoke give shaping, all finished off with a bound neckline. There's a short, straight sleeve and a long sleeve with gathers on the sleeve head.

The Hepburn ShirtwaisterThis is a classic dress with echoes of the late 1940's/ early 1950?s but updated for today. There are 2 collar versions, 1 angular and one curved. There are 3 sleeve choices ? A short capped one, a straight bracelet length or one with a feature cuff. Small pleats add fullness to the skirt both front and back. And last but not least there are skirt side pockets.

Over two Sunday's make a beutiful dress for the Summer or a Vinage event like The Goodwood Revival, the perfect fabric for any of the dresses would be a silk or silk/viscose

The cost of the pattern is included in the workshop price.
