Available anywhere and anytime, join me for my on-line class, Sew Along: The Sylvie Dress, on CreativeLive! The Sylvie Dress is a classic garment, suitable for both everyday and special occasions!
Perfect for the advanced beginner or intermediate sewer, in this class I will walk you through every single step for making either View A or View B. We start with tools, fabrics, and how to assemble a PDF pattern, which is included with your purchase of the class! After that we jump right into construction and I teach you how to install an invisible zipper, finish edges with bias binding, sew darts, gathers, patch pockets, hem, and more!
Both views of the Sylvie Dress feature an unlined sleeveless bodice, with three small darts under the bust, a wide lined waistband, and back bodice darts. The neckline and armholes are finished with bias-binding, and the dress is closed with an invisible zipper up the center back.
View A has an unlined gathered dirndl skirt that can be cut on the length of grain, or on the crossgrain, for use on a border print or for fabric with a finished selvage like eyelet. The skirt is topped with large rectangle patch pockets. The waistband and pockets can be cut on grain, or on the bias, as pictured with the gingham fabric in the photos.
View B has piping above and below the waistband, and features an unlined pencil skirt that is fitted with waist darts. The piping can be made with self-fabric, as in the orange linen in the photos, or with contrast fabric, as in the beige polka-dot fabric in the photos.
