This class is suitable for beginners to dressmaking (you will need to have completed my complete intro to sewing class or be at an equivalent level) "With no darts, zips or set-in sleeves, Stevie is a satisfyingly quick and easy make - yay! Stevie has a modern, boxy fit, with round neckline and kimono sleeves, closing at the back with pretty ties or button loop.
