The Dunga Dress

As part of my book launch, I will be holding a workshop to make a project from my new book ‘ Girl with a Sewing Machine’.

The Dunga dress is one of my favourite projects from the book and has become my wardrobe staple! Great for all seasons and best of all, it has two variations of pockets.

Come and spend a day with me and your sewing machine and let’s start a #sewingrevolution together!
You will need to bring 2 to 3 mtrs of fabric of your choice (denim, corduroy or linen are my fabric suggestions) . Contrast fabric for pocket lining and facings optional.
