Sew a Dress - Next step beginner
Now that you have a few garments and projects under your belt (pardon the pun), let's tackle Dresses, The Fawn Dress by Common Stitch.
As this is a next step beginner lesson, we will still take it slow but we will focus more on pattern cutting, construction, sewing skills and finishing garments.
This is a super comfy dress - easy to sew and easy to wear! Two bodice styles and two skirt lengths, these patterns are the perfect staple for your wardrobe. Beginner friendly and super versatile, mix them up with plain or printed fabrics and get creative! These dress's are designed to be oversized, so there is no need to 'size up' at all!
The Fawn Dress Set of patterns includes 2 different dress designs, each with two length styles (4 dress combinations).
With Sleeves: Short + Long Lengths
Without Sleeves: Short + Long Lengths
Size guide: 6 - 22
Skill Level: If you have taken a beginner workshop or weekender with us, this is perfect next step.
