Advanced Sewing Class
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.
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 needlework along the waist to the tulip sleeves and beautifully lined inside, it is a true couture, heirloom quality garment.

Hey, friends! After 5 years of providing this pattern for free to my readers, I’ve had to make the hard decision to move it to my shop page where it can now be purchased individually or as part of a giant printables collection!
Many of you know, my website experienced a huge loss this year as it was down due to a cyber attack for over a month. I’m attempting to rebuild and regain the income my family lost. I would love for you to check out my shop page and let me know what you think!
