Join us to celebrate our 4th birthday party! Alice will be zooming in from poolside in Palm Springs, California whilst Lilia is holding fort in London.
We'll be showing you how to draft your own 'Angel Dress' from scratch! The design starts with a simple square shape, from which a few pattern-cutting refinements create a terribly chic frock that can take you from poolside to cocktail bar! The Angel Dress is perfect for whipping up for the summer holidays - super simple if you've never drafted anything before, or super quick and fun for the more experienced! In terms of fabric it's a great wearable canvas to show off a fabulous print.
The class will cover how to draft the dress from start to finish to your own measurements including:
- how to take your measurements
- how to draft your pattern step by step
- neckline options
- hack ideas
- how to sew it up

The event will be recorded and the link made available for 30 days following the event - so if you can't make it on the day you will be able to catch up later!
*Please note that you will need to be subscribed up to our newsletter in order to receive emails from us (there is a checkbox when you sign up for the class)*
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
The class will be demonstration of how to draft the dress - you can follow along full scale during the class or take notes and use the recording to draft in your own time, or just sit back and enjoy with your tipple of choice!
If want to follow along full scale you will need:
- x1 piece of paper approx 120cm/47" by 60cm/24"
- A tape measure (we draft in metric, so if you’re more used to inches, a dual tape-measure will be handy - or we can help you to convert along the way)
- Sticky tape
- Paper scissors
Refreshments: we strongly encourage preparing your favourite snack and a cocktail/mocktail of your choice! We've carefully timed the class so that it is an appropriate moment for champagne on both sides of the pond (a 10am brunch mimosa for Alice in Palm Springs, 6pm cocktail hour in London for Lilia!)
Dress Code: From your cosiest PJs to a glamorous cocktail party dress - as this event is on Zoom it's totally up to you!

POUR LES FORMATS A4 / US LETTER : il est indispensable d’imprimer votre patron à 100%, sinon la taille ne sera pas correcte. Vos paramètres d'impression doivent être "pleine échelle" "100%", "taille réelle" ou un paramètre équivalent selon votre logiciel d'impression.
Il y a deux carrés de test sur la première page de chaque patron : un carré de 5 cm et un carré de 2 pouces. N'imprimez d'abord que cette page et vérifiez que votre carré est bien à la bonne taille, avant d'imprimer le reste du patron.
POUR LE FORMAT A0 : suivez les instructions données par votre imprimeur. Des services sont également disponibles en ligne.
