Event Description

Join expert seamstress Pat Stevens at Stitch! Crafts & Classes and learn to make a pinafore dress.

Making an appearance on the fashion runways and magazine covers this season the pinafore dress has been a staple in every 60s wardrobe and now has made a strong comeback. It is an effortless dress to wear and flatters all shapes, heights and sizes. It can be made in different lengths and styles using different fabrics and colours for the different seasons and events. Dress it up for a night out or keep it casual for the day. It's a super versatile item of clothing that you will want to keep in your wardrobe for years to come.
