Let's Make a Honey Dress!

It's Easy, I promise!

Have you always wanted to sew for your daughter or granddaughter? Do you love to smock and would like to include it in your designs, but the child in your life needs simple everyday clothes? Honey is a simple pull on and go dress made of an easy care knit.  Honey can be made with a smocked skirt, a smocked insert or gathered with a high or mid yoke. This course will walk you through every aspect of the construction process. The Bonus material includes adding a contrasting neckband and sleeve band.  This course does not teach how to smock, please see my Learn to Smock Course if you would like to learn.
