Master vintage sewing techniques and design details as you create a classic dress that's customized to complement your figure.
Learn how to sew a vintage dress complete with 1950's-era details. Vintage sewing expert Laura Nash guides you through pattern preparation and personalized bust and length alterations. Laura will be there every step of the way as you construct your timeless bodice with a lining, gathered sleeves and a contrasting trim. Then, sew your flared skirt with patch pockets, and gather it into your bodice before adding a waist stay and lapped zipper. Hand-finish your skirt in retro fashion by easing in the wide circle skirt hem in one simple step. As a bonus, you'll learn to create a custom petticoat that gives your skirt perfect vintage flair.
