About this course

Welcome to the first online sewing course from Sew Over It, the Make Me: Grace Dress online class! 

Designed with beginner dressmakers in mind, Lisa Comfort will guide you through the whole dressmaking process from start to finish, from choosing the correct fabric and measuring yourself to hemming the finished Grace Dress. Full of bonus extras on fitting including a full and small bust adjustment and videos on altering the length of the bodice to fit your figure, the Grace Dress course is a comprehensive guide to sewing your new dress with success.

There are loads of options to choose between with the Grace Dress. Make it in one fabric or colour block it with a contrast bodice and hem band, and leave the waist slightly loose or cinch it in with the tie belt. Plus, exclusive to the online course we have added a pretty cap sleeve to the pattern.

The Grace Dress has a semi-fitted, darted bodice with scooped neckline with optional cap sleeves, a gathered skirt with optional hem band, an invisible zip in the centre back seam, and in-seam pockets. Adding the waist tie will give you a fitted silhouette – but still leaves you with the option to loosen it should you have a big dinner on the cards!

Fantastic for this time of year, the Grace Dress makes a perfect party dress for Christmas and New Year's Eve, as well as an elegant everyday dress for those coming into spring and summer time.
