Sauvie Sundress - Confident Beginner Garment Sewing Class

Learn the basics of garment sewing with Sadhana as you make this fantastic dress! You will learn how to choose the size, trace the pattern if needed, pin and cut the pieces, make pockets, finish seams, and attach a bodice/neck facing. The Sauvie Dress you will make is the simple, straight design with a lined bodice, finished pockets, and mitered hem. The pattern is included in the class fee. You will use The Granary's equipment and sewing machines for this class. You purchase your fabric separately.

This class is for anyone who wants to expand their skills to garment sewing, or people who are new to sewing - but do know how to use a sewing machine. If you have never used a sewing machine, we suggest you first take our Beginning Machine Sewing Class to learn the basics.

Once you sign up for class, you can pick up your pattern and buy your fabric for the size you wish to make. Fabric should be pre-washed,  dried, and pressed before class, if possible. Sadhana recommends one of our Robert Kaufman 44" wide Essex Cotton/Linen blend fabrics or our 58" wide Brussels Washer Cotton/Linen blend fabrics.

The Sauvie Dress pattern comes in two versions; Standard sizes 00-20 and Curvy sizes 16-34. Please note in the comments which version of the pattern you would like to use (see photos of the back of the patterns below). If you are unsure which size to choose, please send an email to the shop,, and Sadhana will give you a call to help you choose a size and recommended yardage.

You must purchase separtely:
 - Fabric for the size dress you wish to make (to account for shrinkage, please purchase 1/4 yd more than recommended) 
 - 1 small Mettler thread to match your fabric (you may want to purchase a second color to match the fabric for top-stitching)

Included in your class fee:
 - Excellent instruction from Sadhana
 - The Sauvie Dress pattern (Sizes 8-22) by Sew to Grow
 - Pellon pattern tracing interfacing to trace the pattern
 - Use of The Granary's scissors, pins, notions, and other tools required for class
