WORK-SHOP - BRISBANE
WHAT TO EXPECT
In this workshop I'll take you through an in person step by step guide of the details behind making a minimal, elegant slip dress or wrap skirt (depending on workshop) – a wardrobe staple piece that’s easy to dress up or down. You’ll come out the other end with a custom made garment that you can strut down the street and respond to compliments with a hair flick and a casual “Oh this thing? I made it.”
It’s a pretty straight forward process that involves basic sewing knowledge (being able to sew a straight line) and going through it properly once, will then give you the ability to whip up all the slip dresses or wrap skirts you want!
Sewing is such a practical and rewarding activity. Getting lost in the creative and technical process is like meditation in that you’re fully consumed by it and in the moment. Then wearing the piece you’ve made and knowing the time, effort and love that went into is an indescribable feeling.
WHAT YOU'LL GET:
A chance to build on your basic sewing skills and put them into action
A custom made garment
Take home pattern and overview of steps
A fun day of creating!
