garment series: sweetheart dress for girls

We absolutely love this adorable Sweetheart Dress by Very Shannon and we're sure that if you have a little girl in your life, they'll love it too! Join our talented garment instructor Erin to make this dress for your sweet girl.

The Sweetheart Dress is a sleeveless dress with gathered skirt and features an adorable heart cut out on the back of the dress (our favorite part!) With a flattering silhouette that showcases your favorite fabrics, the Sweetheart Dress is sure to be a showstopper for any child who wears it.  This dress is perfect for the warm weather coming our way and can be dressed up for more formal events or holidays.

During class, students will learn how to sew a fully lined bodice, how to make gathers, and sewing a button. This 2-week class is suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate sewists who have prior garment sewing experience and can confidently thread and operate a sewing machine independently.
