Improvers sewing workshop: Learn to make a dress from vintage fabric in one day. Price includes:

  • 2.5m length of vintage fabric: This option is a medium weight suiting quality fabric. Light blue and white mini gingham woven check. Composition estimated to be polyester wool mix. This fabric will give a lovely drape to the boxy style dress. It is quite a slippy fabric, I recommend it for confident sewers.
  • Tilly & The Buttons Stevie pattern
  • Button, thread and use of sewing equipment for the day
  • Guidance and top tips from Sarah Richards to help you make your dress

I’ve selected fabrics that are the correct texture and weight for the Stevie Tilly & The Buttons Dress. The fabric will be washed and pressed, ready for you when you arrive at the workshop. Along with everything required for you to make your very own dress. Just in time for summer!

Between 2 and 2.5m of fabric is required for the Stevie dress. The vintage fabrics that I source are unique helping you to create an individual style. Using pre-loved and vintage fabrics is a sustainable way to sew. Reusing textiles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Click here for full details of the workshop.
