Vionnet Spiral Dress • July 19 and 21

, ,

Monday, July 19 and Wednesday, July 21, 1 – 4 pm

Ella Ramsey

Learn about Madeleine Vionnet and her style of garments–and learn the secrets of making a Vionnet Spiral Dress in this two part workshop! The fabric is cut on the straight of the grain, marked and sewn with finished armholes, neckline, and hem. The result is a bias dress that slips over your head, feels comfortable, and fits–using only 1 1/2 to 2 yards of fabric with little waste.

Students need to provide their own supplies for the class and fabric recommendations are included on the supply list.
