Gail Doane

April 5 - 9, 2017

Gail Doane is returning to Nashville. We will host her April 5-9, 2017. To register for the class, give us a call at 615-292-1746.


April 5 - 7 Gail will teach Tartan Trim Raglan Sleeve Twill Jacket and DressTwo fully functional angle cut double welt pockets on the front of the jacket mirror the appearance of the bound buttonholes, giving the project a tailored, professionally constructed look.  The jacket is fully lined with the coordinating tartan plaid which allows a bias cut fold back cuff on the sleeve for additional growth room. The coordinating dress features piped, bias cut tartan overlays on the bodice front and sleeves. The box pleated skirt front provides fullness while complimenting the tailored look of the jacket.  A piped edge, half back belt, complete with bound buttonholes adds interest to the back of the dress. Three sizes of buttons compliment the neckline of the dress, the full ‘button down the back’ closure on the dress, and the front of the jacket. Size range 4-10 and kit prices will be around $135.

April 8 - 9 Gail will teach Cotten Sheen Sateen Smocked and Beaded Dress. As featured in the January edition of Classic Sewing, this dress is 100% cotton, sheen sateen dress has a seed bead slipped on with every stitch.  The result is a beautiful and interesting texture on the front of the project.  The white beads on the front of the smocking are perfectly complimented by the white Swiss voile collar which features dozens of ⅛” tucks and ‘dotted’ Swiss edging.  The Swiss edging is carried over on the feminine, but not too puffy sleeves, paired with wide Swiss beading.  White cotton organdy sashes add a lovely addition to the back of the dress.  The hem is bound with the white Swiss voile. Size range 4-10 and kit prices will be around $140.
