This kit contains 6 of our most popular wedding dress sewing patterns that range in size and style so you'll have the most options! Also included are 4 studio filmed videos that show you how to interchange the sewing patterns (the bodice from one dress can go on another's skirt!), alter the style through pattern making, and also how to sew and work with fine wedding dress fabrics like silk and chiffon. You will also learn how to install horse hair into fabric for that classic wedding dress hem finish. You can also alter these patterns to be wonderful bridesmaid dresses, you can shorten the hemline and sew in your favorite color.
