Yes! I want to design skirts, blouses and dresses!

My Dress Block is SO BORING!!  I'm Not Going to Wear That!!!

I have to admit it - a dress block is the most boring dress ever!  Why would anyone want to wear that?

Well, NO one wants to wear a dress made from the block - UNTIL it's been styled and re-designed. 

But the good news is - you can re-design it by adding fullness and styling details.  You can make it anything you want it to be!


Really?  I can turn that boring dress into something I like??!??!

The purpose of the dress block is not to wear it "as is".  The purpose is to establish the perfect fit for you. 

Once you have established that fit, you can start adding styling details that actually make a great looking - and great-fitting - dress!



Of course, your dress block consists of a bodice and skirt - so you can style those garments, too! 

Make a skirt with pleats, flare, gathers - or even a shaped mermaid!

And your bodice can be used to create any number of lovely tops and blouses - and they don't have to have clunky darts and a super-close fit.  

A Beginner's Guide to Skirts, Blouses and Dresses shows you how to make dozens of styles using just your dress block. 

Make a skirt and blouse for work, or a cute sundress for a picnic with friends.  Casual or businesslike, you can create the styles that suit your taste and your lifestyle.
