I am teaching 2 new classes at The Workroom and I am pretty excited about both. The first one is the Tea Party Dress or Playsuit from Oliver + S. I made the dress and bloomer option for a sophiscated toddler I know (model photos to follow). It's such a cute pattern, I mean bloomers?! Come on.

I also decided to do a colour story inspired by Inchmark. It was really great way to help decide on which fabrics went where and get a sense of how the colours and patterns worked together (or not, I didn't include the failures) proportionally.


It's a great pattern full of tips and yields a very well constructed outfit. Finishing details make such a difference in the way a garment hangs and wears. This pattern goes over those plus covers some nice construction details so you end up with a more professional looking garment and get a chance increase your sewing skills.


I think there are a few spots left for this class, let Karyn know if you are interested.

i wish i knew more little girls. everyone i know has little boys and i'd much rather make girls clothes.

nonetheless, i CAN'T wait for this class. i'm still making a dress and hopefully one day, one of my friends will have a girl and i'll be ready with the perfect gift!

I can't wait to take this class from you. I always enjoy them so much.

I am away for the March session, but hope there will be another one in the future. Our friends are all having babies and so far, they are all girls! This outfit is perfect.
