In this 3 Session class you will learn how to construct a Bishop Dress.  Any Size from 6 month - Size 6
You must already know how to smock prior to taking this class.

Supplies to Purchase: 

  • Pattern: The Children's Corner Bishop

Go ahead and trim the pattern size of choice, but DO NOT cut dress before class as part of class time has been allotted for that.  At the end of class one, you will have the Bishop ready to be pleated.  I will take the dresses home to pleat and return back to the shop within one or two days.  Two weeks has been scheduled between the 1st and 2nd class to allow for smocking.  Class 2 and 3 are used to finish the garment.  You will learn children's garment sewing techniques in this class to make you more comfortable sewing many more Bishops!
