make*do*mend: Intermediate Apparel Sewing, The Helmi Dress - Wednesdays, 2/12, 2/19 + 2/26, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

We love the Helmi Dress! It's the perfect combination of classy and comfortable. A great way to up your apparel sewing game, the Helmi helps you learn how to make a stand collar, install an invisible button placket, set a sleeve and more. This three session class will focus on the dress version of the pattern. 

Experience Level: Intermediate Apparel (this is not a first apparel project: you’ve sewn quite a few non-apparel projects and a few other apparel projects, such as the Scout Tee and the Fen Dress)

  • Recommended PRE-WASHED yardage of preferred fabric
  • 1/4y lightweight fusible interfacing

All class materials available for purchase at Drygoods Design; all class registrants enjoy 20% off class materials.


Price: $160 (includes nine hours of instruction, use of studio machines and tools)

*While we do our best to meet the needs for fit, we recommend consulting the pattern to ensure your measurements fit within the sizing range. If you haven't taken other apparel classes with us, we highly recommend our apparel sewing 101 class, This is a Pattern, to learn how to measure, read, trace, and cut out the pattern successfully. Taking it will make all classes in apparel easier and more likely you’ll finish in the allotted time with precutting/tracing pattern.

We currently have 1 in stock. With fabrics, this may be approximate. All fabrics are sold by the yard. During these times of covid-19 we are only able to process whole yards, no smaller cuts. If there's a shortage with what you order, you will be notified before it ships/delivers to choose a swap or a refund for the difference. Thank you for your understanding!
