The Lucy - a perfect summer dress for little girls! Super easy to wear and a perfect beginners introduction to dress making for children. I will show you how to make a pattern for this versatile dress - which you can either lengthen to a maxi or make as a top!

Bring your own fabric and we will provide the rest of the materials needed to finish your project.

Perfect for beginners and those wanting to brush up on their skills.

Our workshops start at 9:30 and finish by 1:30 and are held in our gorgeous garden sewing room in Tunbridge Wells. There is a maximum of four on each workshop so they are small, friendly, fun and you get your project finished with lots of support.

And lots of tips
