Sewing Dresses Boot Camp


Learn all the basics of sewing beautiful dresses that fit you in just a few (super fun) weeks!

Students will focus on learning basic sewing skills to create 2-3 gorgeous dresses that actually fit your body. We’ve designed a 15 hour sewing class that will take your skills to the next level.

This is a sewing course is designed for the sewing student who’s had some basic experience. The course is 15 hours in total divided up between 5-6 weekly classes, depending on the schedule – details below.

As with all our sewing classes, all students work at their own pace and focus on learning new skills based on the skills they come to class with.

How many dresses you make in the class will depend on:

  • How much experience you come to class with.

  • How much work you do at home and in open lab.

  • The pace you work.
