The Wrap Dress with Ann Steeves Course

Regular price$75.00

There's nothing more useful, practical or easy-to-wear than a Wrap Dress, especially when it's made from a knit.  

Join Ann Steeves, owner of Gorgeous Fabrics, and Susan Khalje, to learn how to sew this classic garment - yes, inspired by that Diane von Furstenburg wardrobe staple from the 1970's - on your regular sewing machine; no serger or  special equipment needed!

Sewing with knits is new territory for Susan - as it may be for you -  and you’ll learn alongside her as she asks the same questions you would. 

Ann shares how to choose appropriate fabrics, threads, needles and machine settings, and she shows the construction of the Classic Wrap Dress every step of the way.  You'll be inspired to sew one for yourself!

It was such an exciting time, being able to sew for hours a day and do exactly what I love, that things have paled in comparison since then.  Work isn’t very exciting anymore I just want to sew.


I just wanted to thank you again for an absolutely amazing week of learning. Not only did I come away with a gorgeous jacket but my levels of confidence and sewing inspiration were increased tenfold!


I am so enjoying your online course The Couture Dress. You are so delightful with your presentation and what makes the course so great is your heartfelt commentaries about the process not just the procedures.
