In this three-session course, you’ll complete a smocked piece that can be used as the yoke of a child’s dress or top. 

You will learn:

  • about selecting and adapting a dress/top pattern
  • fabric preparation
  • how to pleat your fabric ready for smocking (using our pleating machine)
  • tips for thread and colour selection
  • basic stitches
  • preparing your smocked piece for sewing into a dress/top
  • tips for incorporating your smocked piece into a dress/top  

More information about fabric choice and quantity, and suitable dress/top patterns, will be sent out when course numbers are confirmed. We have all you need in the shop, including fabric, threads and a selection of free dress/top patterns.
