PRODUCT DETAILS

Go inside Vogue Patterns headquarters to gain designer insight before you learn to sew three distinctly elegant dresses with the included Tracy Reese V1397 Vogue pattern. Alongside Apparel Arts instructor Sara Alm, you'll sew a vintage-inspired, floral print dress with front pockets, an invisible zipper, a deep back, a raw-edged neckline and a built-in petticoat with dramatic French-seamed ruffles. Then get confident working with modern lace fabric as you construct a feminine, fashion-forward dress variation with a contrast lining, petersham ribbon seams and a slot zipper. Finally, skillfully sew a bold, graphic dress variation with a bias grain line, perfectly matched stripes and an eye-catching chevron pattern on the skirt. Master advanced sewing techniques you can use on any garment as you make designer dresses that beg to be shown off!
