Sewing Workshop:   Little Black Dress (LBD)

LBD just doesn't need to be black!  The princess seamed dress can go from day to night and looks great in many fabric choices.  The seams flatter all figures especially those with a fuller bust.  Change the neckline, sleeve and dress length for that custom design just for you.  We will use the latest princess seamed fit pattern by Palmer/Pletsch (M7352).

In this multi day advanced workshop you will:

  • practice on 1/4 scale pattern the adjustment technique
  • discuss fabric choices, neckline and sleeve options
  • fit the basic princess seamed dress pattern (B6850 previously M7352)
  • fabric fit and sew your dress

    Loved learning to fit princess lines as this is a key shape for my figure variations. This was a great workshop in learning how to deal with a different silhouette. Many of my tee shirts are now princess seamed because I learned how to handle the adjustments in Janice’s class. Well worth the time and effort.
