Bring your unloved, unworn, broken or ill-fitting clothes to this session and learn skills and techniques that will bring them back into wardrobe rotation!
With any luck, Spring is about to be in full swing. Perhaps you'd would really like some new clothes in your wardrobe for the new season, but financially it's just not happening! This session, however, will help you rework and refresh things you already have to bring some much needed fun into your clothing selection.
Reworking your existing clothes, rather than chucking them away and buying new things, will save you money and has a much smaller environmental impact. Plus, this session will teach you new sewing skills and approaches that you can use again and again in the future. We can also rescue charity shop and vintage finds!
The Rework Your Wardrobe session is simple: you just need to bring a bag full of garments to fix, fit or rework, we provide all the equipment you will need. However, if your garment had a broken zip, you will need to bring a replacement that I can help you insert.
We will start the session by taking a look at what everyone has brought and having a brief chat about each garment to establish what needs to be done to bring them back to life.
I will then assist you to fix/fit//rework as many garments as possible within the session.
The skills, techniques and approaches you will learn will obviously depend on what your garments require, but they may include:
- Hemming trousers and skirts
- Fixing rips, tears and holes
- Reshaping for a more flattering fit
- Inserting a new zip
- Shortening hems or sleeves for a new look
- Plus many others!
