The Montana Dress

Wednesday, June 5, 10am - 4pm 

Introducing the Montana Dress by Style Arc the first in our Wardrobe Staples series. It's a timeless piece that embodies the essence of effortless style and versatility. As one maker beautifully put it, "We all have those go-to pieces in our closet that we keep for years and literally wear out before we retire them. I'm here to make the go-tos, the keepers."* 

The Montana Dress is precisely that—a keeper. Both comfortable and versatile, this dress is designed to be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come. With its pull-on style and extended shoulders, it offers a loose silhouette that can be effortlessly dressed up or down for a variety of occasions, from casual outings to more formal events.

The skirt features slight gathers that fall from the high waist, creating a flattering drape, while in-seam pockets add a practical yet stylish touch. Best of all, this is a no-fuss dress that can be sewn in an afternoon, making it perfect for both beginner and experienced sewists alike.

Crafted from fabrics such as washed linen, rayon, crepe, linen/cotton blends or even a knit, the Montana Dress promises to be both comfortable and chic, offering endless possibilities for styling and accessorizing.

Join our sewing expert Irene as she guides you through the process of creating this timeless dress that will become a cherished go-to piece in your wardrobe. Don't miss out on the opportunity to elevate your sewing skills and create a dress that you'll love to wear again and again!
