Learn to sew the classic fit & flare Emery Dress! Join the pattern designer, Christine Haynes, for this weekend retreat intensive, and sew every single step of the pattern with Christine’s guiding hand. Students will learn how to take proper measurements, how to layout, cut, and mark the fabric, as well as how to sew all the construction steps, including darts, understitching, gathering, in-seam pockets, setting sleeves, lining the bodice, the invisible zipper, and more! Please note that this retreat does not focus on fitting, though Christine will go over basic pattern adjustments and assist with minor fitting issues as needed.
About the Materials:
Your class fee includes 18 hours of instruction, use of sewing machines and basic notions, lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and water and snacks throughout the weekend.
Students will be required to purchase the pattern, fabric, and all necessary notions to complete their Emery Dress. A detailed supply list and coupon code will be emailed to you prior to class.
About the Students:
Due to the condensed nature of the schedule, students at an advanced beginner or intermediate level are best suited for this retreat. Ideally students have made a garment or two on their own, and can operate a sewing machine with minimal or no supervision.
Please note: There are NO refunds or store credit given at any time for classes with out of town instructors and special guest instructors. Your seat may be transferred to a friend if you cannot attend.
