Heirloom Dress-Swiss Lace Techniques

Heirloom sewing is making a comeback in children's dresses and women's garments.  With a few new skills, you can add beautiful details to your sewing repertoire.  

This lecture demonstration class assumes you have prior construction knowledge, including attaching a gathered skirt, basic seams, simple buttonhole, pressing and following simple pattern instructions.  Learn how to insert Swiss embroidery to a yoke and attach it decoratively at the hemline.  There are no sleeves on this child's dress as it can be worn more easily with a sweater for all seasons.  The techniques learned in this class can be easily applied to a ladies' blouse, with garment construction knowledge.

The basic yoke dress pattern and printed instruction are included in this class.  After the demonstration portion of the class, you will practice on your own machine with Carolyn's help.  This is a three hour class, both demonstration and hands on.
