We had so much fun putting this video together to highlight some advanced sewing skills! Julia created an 18″ American Girl Doll dress pattern inspired by this beautiful, Neapolitan dress pictured above, and we’d love to have you sew it with us. We originally released this video as part of a paid, sewing class membership and pattern set. It is now available to you for FREE!
In this ADVANCED SEWING CLASS, you will learn:
- The art of pressing seams
- Stitching in the ditch to create a professional looking neckline
- Gathering a skirt
- Creating a beautiful lining so the inside of the dress looks as good as the outside
- Attaching a Velcro closure
- Clipping the curve and trimming seams
- And more!
Julia and her mom worked skillfully at creating this adorable dress for her daughter. Down to every last stitch, the detail on it is exquisite. From the waffle cone inspired needle work along the waist, to the tulip sleeves and beautifully lined inside, it is a truly couture, heirloom quality garment.
