Three Little Birds Sewing Co

VIRTUAL CLASS -- Wiksten Shift Dress or Top

$ 75.00

This loose shift is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths: a cropped top, above-the-knee dress, or calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers. Patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options are included. Neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.

This class is appropriate for beginners -- those that are comfortable threading a machine, winding a bobbin, and know what seam allowances are.

Class will cover:

  • How to properly take measurements and choose your size
  • Reading a pattern and basic sewing terminology
  • How to finish seam allowances and insert a neck facing

This class will meet via Zoom on September 8th, 15th, and 22nd at 7pm. We will meet for approximately 2 hours (more or less, if needed). Students will need to sew on their own, outside of class time, in order to complete the dress or top. 

You will receive a link for Zoom approximately 20 minutes prior to class. 

What you'll need:
