Have you been searching for the perfect dress pattern but cant find it?

In this class we design a dress, make a sample, fit it then sew it out of final fabrics. 

This class is suitable for anyone who has taken sewing 101 or has equivalent skills.

Maybe you want a simple dress to wear everyday or a cocktail dress for special events that will turn heads. Whatever your dress dreams are we will bring them to life in this class.

Class Ends: June 14th

Class is 6 weeks long. We will meet once a week on Tuesday evening from 6pm-9pm at Anastasia's fashion design studio in Chicago.



Day 1 - Sketching and designing the dress. We will go over all the details through sketching. I have also designed a really easy system for you to create your dress. You can choose different sleeves, necklines, bodices, skirts & details to compile together to  design your look. So you do not have to be good at sketching just picking and choosing styles.

Day 5 - Cut & sew original design
