Product Description:
Step by Step VIDEO Tutorial.
Great for Beginners and Intermediate Seamstresses.

My Step-by Step VIDEO Tutorials are extremely detailed and I show you every step while we “sew together” I make sure to explain why I am doing something and what the benefit is and I cover all the necessary tools and fabric suggestions in the video and in the tutorial page. The front slit maxi dress is fabulous and fun to make and can be made in both woven and knit fabrics. You will NOT need to purchase a commercial pattern to make this dress, We frat it from start to finish. I cover ALL OF THIS in the video. My goal is to make sure that I keep the process clear and easy for everyone to follow no matter the skill level.
