Building Block Dress Workshop
Little girls, (and Moms) love a simple sleeveless A-line dress in a fun fabric. Make your own knock-off of a pricey boutique brand by starting with Liesl Gibson’s brilliant Building Block Dress Book–A Sewing Pattern Alteration Guide. Annette has used the book A LOT, for several different styles and sizes, and is so excited to share it with KMIS friends. It is simple to take the basic bodice provided in sizes 6 mon-12 yrs, lengthen, then flare it into the classic A-line style.
Annette will guide you and the pattern will be ready in no time. Then we will cut and sew the dress. A polished look comes from the full lining, and you can complete as you like with a zipper or one-button closure with small back slit. As for the book, you will be inspired by the charming photos of countless styles with sleeve and collar variations, precise illustrations, and clear directions that Liesl is known for–this book will be your go-to for years to come if you want to sew clothes for girls. Please bring a sewing machine and the items specified on the supply list. Lunch is included in the price of this workshop.
