Come and join us for a fun day in our dressmaking studio, and make either one of these easy to make garments.  The Agnes and the Orla Tunic Dress are so versatile, and can be made in a whole host of fabrics. 

Agnes is an everyday tunic and is just so practical. It has useful pockets and a loop and buttton neck opening.

Orla is a swingy trapeze shape tunic with a a loop and button opening at the back, side pockets, optional bias trim edging. You can make it sleeveless or with short sleeves.

Both dresses are available in sizes S (8-10) Med (12-14) and Large (16-18).
The Agnes tunic has also been sized up to a XL (20-22)

Included in the price of the workshop is the paper pattern so you can make the dress over and over again.
