Sewing School With Gail Doane

April 2-6, 2019

Join us for our Sewing School with Gail Doane. This promises to be five days filled with fellowship and fabulous projects!

We will host Gail in our classroom for 5 days. Gail will teach her Smocked A-Line dress two days of the class, and the remaining projects will be determined as we get closer to class.

Smocked A-Line Dress with Crochet Trim 

This easy fitting A-line style dress features a center block of simple geometric smocking on the dress front and two smocked sections on the dress backs. Working with #12 perle cotton, a #10 crochet hook, and a strip of entredeux, learn how to combline two simple crochet stitches, single and double crochet, into a charming scalloped edge trim. The tailored short sleeves have a box pleat at the cap . The dress buttons all the way down the back. The pattern sheets in sizes 2, 4, 6, and 8 will be included in the project kits. Basic geometric smocking is a pre-requisite. Corrdinating knitted sweater info available upon request.
