Wiksten shift dress or shirt
Time & Location
About the Event
This loose shift is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths: a cropped top, above-the-knee dress, or calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers. Patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options are included. Neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.
This class is suitable for beginners who know how to use a sewing machine.
We will meet August 19, 26, and September 2.
Students may use the studio between classes by appointment if needed. Because of Covid 19 the hours of operation are limited.
