Natalie’s passion for hand sewing and sustainability are the roots that helped The School of Making flourish into the entity that it is today. Throughout 2020, The School of Making will be launching new programing that will coincide with the celebration of 20 years since Natalie began her journey to our Family of Businesses and expand the offerings available to home sewers.
Today, The School of Making officially launches the beloved A-Line Dress Pattern, the first of several patterns from Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns and the Studio Book Series that will be made available this year as standalone paper patterns and/or as digital downloads that can be printed at home or at a local copy shop. This pattern comes with guidelines for fabric selection, cutting, and garment instruction.
A long-time favorite, The A-Line Dress style is perfect for every figure. It is slightly fitted in the bust with a full flare through the hip and a classic v-neckline. This classic shape lends itself well to appliqué and embellishment or can be kept as a basic for more casual, everyday wear. The A-Line Dress can be made in any of four variations: the top, the tunic, the dress, and the long dress.
