Merchant & Mills Trapeze Dress | Two Day Workshop

Available Options:
workshop date:

Learn to sew Anna and Anne's favourite dress pattern, in our friendly studio above the shop. They love this Merchant and Mills pattern because it tailored to be very flattering, and is an incredibly versatile pattern with lots of room for adaption.  Once you know how to sew one, you won't be able to stop!

Included in the price of the workshop is the paper pattern so you can make the dress over and over again. The pattern is for UK sizes 8 - 18. 

About your Teacher:

As well as being an incredible designer, pattern cutter and seamstress Maria Pulley is also an excellent teacher, who's passion for sewing is infectious. She totally loves the whole process of creating a garment, from the concept through to the craft of making it.

Class Size:

Maximum class size of 6.


This course is great for beginners, but equally satisfying for those with some experience.


You will need to provide between 1.5m - 2.25m of fabric, depending on the size of the dress, width of fabric and direction of the nap / print.  The dress looks great in light to medium weight wovens that have a good drape, or soft wools and tweeds are perfect for a winter dress. You are welcome to bring your own fabric, or choose from our vast selection in the shop.

Course Duration:

2 full days.


Workshops are held in our colourful and cosy studio, above the shop. There is lots of space to spread out and a separate chill out area to have a break. The shop is located in central Chichester, about a 10 minute walk from the train and bus station. The closest car park is The Cattle Market.
