Sew Your Own-Buffet Dress

April 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - April 10, 2022 @ 4:30 pm


What’s not to love about the buffet dress!  A Loose fitting, floaty feminine dress that can be dress up for special occasions or toned down with pumps for totting about town.

We have put this workshop into Two Sessions; we find shorter sewing spells can sometimes be more productive for some Sewists to maximise their learning, rather than one long day.

Choose from two brilliant patterns:

Choose from:
Indigo– Tilly & Buttons

Cute, comfy and effortlessly stylish, the Indigo smock has no fiddly fastenings so you can throw it on and go. Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, gently curved empire waistline, and floaty gathered skirt. Choose from three-quarter flounce sleeves or slim-fitting bracelet sleeves.

Two lengths to choose from with optional bottom ruffle

Size UK 6-24

Hope Style Arc

The Hope Woven Dress is high waisted and features a stunning deep raglan statement sleeve, that creates a full sleeve which is intended to be worn at 7/8th length and elasticated at the cuff.

Two finished lengths to choose from

Size 4-30
