Take the fear out of cutting and sewing stretch fabrics!

Work with the best and enhance your experience sewing with high quality lycra!

The BOO! Circle Panel Dress series consists of self-paced lessons that guide you through the fundamentals of sewing a child's dress using BOO! Designs' circle panel and PDF pattern. Choose to sew a sleeved or sleeveless sparkly circle panel dress and learn how to easily cut the preprinted panel and fussy cut the unique designs for the bodice. Master new skills, including the importance of marking, understanding quarter openings, and stitching wrapped binding. A bonus lesson covers problem-solving and test stitching to achieve optimal machine settings for a professional finish.

This series is ideal for confident beginners who have a working knowledge of their sewing machine and want to master stretch basics. All you need is a sewing machine with stretch stitches and twin needle capabilities to sew the Circle Panel Dress. If you have an overlocker and/or coverstitch machine, you'll also find tips and tricks for utilizing their features.

A kit is mailed to you before the class date that includes a Circle Panel Dress Kit (sizes 2-10 girls). The series is completed online, requiring only an internet connection and your preferred viewing method. On the day of the scheduled event, you will gain access to the video series through your online customer account on our website, allowing you to refer back to these lessons as many times as needed.
