Dress a girl


After the success of our last Southsea Sisters crafting session we will be meeting again in October to support this wonderful project.

So what will you need to bring?

  • approximately 1 metre of cotton fabric
  • an additional  piece of fabric if you’d like to add a contrasting band with matching arm hole binding and fabric tie
  • 2 metres double fold bias tape, or we can make some.
  • coordinating thread
  • scissors
  • pins
  • safety pins
  • a pack of elastic (about 1/2 inch wide)

There is a nifty tutorial here and also here.

You don’t need to be an amazing seamstress, you can be a complete beginner! If you have a sewing machine that you are competent with please bring it and be prepared to help others. I will provide an iron and board and a paper pattern.
