Learn to Sew Ava
Updated: May 19
Ava is a classic dress with a raised bodice and square neck, providing a blank canvas perfect for monograms or heirloom embellishments. Use VIEW A for an Angel sleeve or sleeveless option and VIEW B for a capped short sleeve. The bodices are fully lined, and the skirt is gathered. This playful and casual look will shine from the beach to the playground. In addition, the Smocked Ava add-on is included in the video. With a few rows of smocking placed just below the bodice, the opportunities to customize are abundant. Susan teaches all 3 views from start to finish.
