1920’s Jazz Age Dress Workshop Series (1920JDS) 7 ½ Hours Total
Are you ready to start on your “Miss Fisher” wardrobe? Have nothing to wear to this year’s Gatsby themed holiday or New Year’s party? This workshop series will help you create a 1920’s day or evening dress based upon a pattern you have or one of ours in stock. (Our staff will help you select a pattern in advance if you do not have one!)
Week 1- We will cut and fit a muslin of your dress and create the perfect pattern. While you wait your fitting turn, help will be given to cut and seam your skirt portion and show how your pattern can also create a slip to go under your dress if needed. After your fitting, you will be able to cut out the top of your dress.
Week 2- As each dress will be different, we will work with each of you to seam up your dress, insert the sleeves if your design has them and deal with neck and arm hole finishing.
Week 3- This is time for a final fitting, attachment of the skirt to the bodice, hems and any finishing details your dress may need.
Maximum class size: 6 people
Supplies needed: 1920’s dress pattern, 2 yards of muslin for initial fitting, 2 ¾ yd-4 ¾ yd dress fabric depending on fabric width and students dress size, matching thread for dress, notions as dictated by your pattern
