Washi Workshop



We are so excited to be able to offer this full-day workshop!

This sweet and flattering dress features a cut-out scoop neckline, an above-the-knee hemline, pockets, and shirring in the back for an easy, comfortable fit. No zippers or closures are needed, making it a wonderful project for the advanced beginner to intermediate sewist. The pattern can be made without sleeves, with a basic scoop neckline, as a tunic, or with a longer skirt to achieve a large number of different looks. You’ll be thrilled with all of the variations you can create with this fantastic pattern!

This has been our most popular garment pattern to date. Y'all have been asking for a workshop and now, lucky us, Alison O'Grady (garment sewist/instructor extraordinaire) will be in our Creative Studio to lead you all to great success. The goal is to have everyone modeling their completed dresses by the end of the day!

As with all Creative Studio Workshops, Karis will cater lunch in. Anyone who has experienced one of our workshops can attest to her hostess sensibilities. 

We hope you will join Alison for a fantastic day in the studio. Read her bio HERE.

Materials Included: Includes Lunch
Requirements: The following are required:
