The apron is hot! And this 6-week class puts you in a pleasing A-line dress version just in time for spring break. Snaps/buttons, facings, pockets and French seaming are some of the skills we'll cover. After making one, you're going to want a closet full of them!

**We think of sewing as a lifestyle. This class requires access to a sewing machine between classes. Classes are designed to introduce and practice skills in the studio with plenty of time for demonstrations, questions, and time for you to work on your garment. Between classes, you will apply what you've learned and prep for the next class. When the class is completed, you will have a finished garment and you'll be ready to go home and do it again!
