The Fen Dress from Fancy Tiger Crafts is a great advanced beginner sewing pattern, one that bridges the gap between the simplest of garment patterns and more advanced dressmaking patterns. In class you will be making the dress version, but the pattern also allows for making a simple top as well. Designed with everyday wear in mind, Fen is a great casual dress, which features a slightly boxy shape for a flattering, comfortable fit. Pattern and sewing tools included at class. Fabric not included. Check the pattern back for fabric yardage required for your size. Bring your pre-washed fabric to class. The class on Saturday, November 9th is a day workshop from 10:30-4pm with a 30 minute lunch break in between and we will order something yummy for lunch.
