The Sewing Pattern
Our 4th Edition Solo Dress Pattern will be the basis for these videos. Those with older versions will still learn plenty, just be aware that many aspects of the pattern have changed including skirt or bodice styles, pattern pieces, and construction techniques, which may cause confusion. As we offer a discount for folks looking to “upgrade” their pattern to the newest version, we encourage you to take advantage of this offer in order to get the best experience out of the videos.

We believe you will have the best experience on a desktop or laptop computer, but larger tablets usually work too. We don’t recommend trying to navigate these pages and videos from a smartphone. Each of the 31 videos are organized as an individual download, so users don’t need to download all at once. These files total 12.1 GB in size, which may be a lot for devices with limited storage. Consider purchasing a USB drive (“thumb” drive) to store them on.
