Make your own Dress Form

Have you ever wished you had a twin? Someone who could stand still for you while you fit that dress or hem that skirt? In one day, instructor Sarah MacIntyre will make your wish come true! Using brown paper tape you will make your own dress form. Please come wearing appropriate under garments and have a tight fitting tee shirt with sleeves that you won’t mind cutting apart and you’ll come away with your own personalized dress form – perfect for helping you complete that next garment for yourself with ease. (No sewing experience necessary for this workshop).


Instructor: Sarah MacIntyre
Originally from Cape Breton, NS, Sarah MacIntyre has lived in New Brunswick for the past 25 years but maintains her Celtic roots by spending time next to the Bras D'or lakes at her family's property every summer. After spending a year living on Vancouver Island in 2012 and finding her passion for sewing, her travels brought her back to NB seeking further knowledge in clothing construction. Sarah enrolled at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in 2013, and graduated in 2015. She currently tutors sewing at the College and maintains a small label called Moon Wear working from home and vending at summer music festivals and holiday craft sales.
