Designing, Sewing, and Making Dresses

A cute handmade summer dress using kwik sewing pattern number 3395.

Lynn from Bakersfield, California sends us this photo of the dress she made from a Kwik sewing pattern. You can see the sewing pattern review here.


Self made empire waist dress for a Cotillion.

Jacquelyn from Delaware made this dress for her Cotillion. There was plenty of gathering used to form the shape of the dress.  The deep purple color adds style and elegance to this empire waist silhouette. Nice job!


Shannon designed and made her dress, purse, and matching hat.


This adorable dress was made by Jena, a mother of 5, 4 boys, and one little tiny girl.  Jena somehow still finds time to sew, and made this Easter dress for herself.  Excellent job.


Zoe designed and made this dress for her sister's first communion.


Two Favorite Sewing & Dress Making Books We Use Here at Love to Sew Studio Are:

Love to Sew Studio Loves Chic & Simple Sewing book.

Christine Haynes book "Chic & Simple Sewing." This is our all-time favorite sewing book to use for beginners to intermediate students in our studio, and full size patterns are included. This book is filled with adorable easy to sew dresses, skirts, and more for the modern hip girl!


Love to Sew Studio Loves "Twinkle Sews" book.

We also have Wenlan Chia's  "Twinkle Sews" in our studio. It's definitely for the more advance student though! The patterns are on a disk and you can print them right on your own computer. We love her designs and youthful spirit in her collection of 25 pieces of clothing to make in this book.




Amber made this gown for Halloween.  This is a more difficult dress or gown to make.  Gowns are a little  harder to make because you have much more fabric to work with. This gown is made from a medium weight satin fabric.  It is trimmed in elegant lace and has a zipper back.


Three students work hard in making the outfits they are wearing to get ready for the 2012 fashion show!


Jaqi is the model for a colonial dress that I made from 100 % cotton calico fabric.  When I used to sell crafts and quilts, it was required at some shows and  historical places, to wear colonial attire. I wore this dress with a shawl.


Amber made her Easter Dress out of 100 % light weight cotton fabric in a coral print. This adorable spaghetti strap dress is perfect for beginners to sew because it has no buttons or zippers.


Katherine made this adorable country little sun dress out of 100 % calico cotton fabric.
