Happy Ava giving a twirl in Grandma Ann’s beautiful Christmas dress

Keen to return to dressmaking,  Ann decided to join the Sewing Bee Workshops to make a Christmas dress for granddaughter Ava as a dressmaking for beginners project. It may be small, but Ava’s dress packed a punch of dressmaking techniques from accurate cutting out, machine skills, lining, net underskirts and a perfect concealed zip. It looks fabulous Ann!
