November Sewing Class Week 1

We started our second Beginner's Sewing Class at Make and Take Craft Weekend this month and these ladies were total rock stars sewing up 3 pillowcase dresses for Craft Hope Project 23 during their first class! We went over how to properly thread the machine and had to mess with some bobbin issues but then we got to work on our dresses. We sent a total of 9 pillowcase dresses to Craft Hope and they all turned out so darn cute!

I just love the look of the vintage pillowcases as a dress and what an easy sew, no hemming at all! We used the directions for a pillowcase dress from The Craft Hope book but there are many tutorials online like here, here and here. One of the best things about the pillowcase dress is that is can be worn all year round with layers and can go from dress to tunic as your child grows!
