This class is six lessons long and is for those who already have a good bit of sewing experience. If you are at an intermediate level (or have completed the Regency Gown Class), you will be able to tackle the Tea Gown. This pattern requires more careful fitting, and if you make the full dress in all its glory, you'll be creating multiple skirt layers and working with more difficult fabrics, like chiffon or silk.
