In this advanced beginner class, students can choose to make either a knit or woven version of the River Dress. If you're a bit intimidated to sew knit fabrics but want to, this class is a great way to dive into knits. And if you are simply looking for a versatile woven dress, this is your best bet! It is fully reversible and comes with an optional waist tie!
Note: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, please arrange to collect your pattern and cut your pattern out before class. If you are not able to collect your pattern, please let us know and we will mail it to you! We encourage you to stop into the shop before class for help cutting out your fabric if needed.
