I know you have seen the dress before, but after a lovely response I have decided to do a sewing class at Frankie and Swiss where you can leave with the perfect summer dress. It is a great beginners project with lots of confidence building and we will work through it in a small class step by step even if your current sewing ability is straight lines. I am tentatively thinking
Saturday 15th Oct 12:30 – 5ish for $60.
It is BYO fabric and you will need to purchase the pattern (let me know before you do though).
