Wardrobe Surgery // Sustainable Fashion Week [Sept 2021]

For September’s Sustainable Fashion Week bring a bit of life back to your worn or unloved garms at Stitched Up’s Wardrobe Surgery!

Got a t-shirt you no longer wear or jeans that don’t fit anymore? Don’t chuck them out, get creative and give them a new lease of life.

At this one-and-a-half-hour workshop you’ll learn how to wield a needle and thread to rework r repair an unloved item of clothing. Dive into our stash of reclaimed textiles, trims and buttons and get inspired by our samples rail. 

We’ll experiment with a variety of techniques including visible mending, garment reconstruction and embellishment to create a garment you’ll wear for years to come! 

Examples of the kinds of projects you can tackle include: cropping a shirt or hoodie, turning a dress into a co-ord, covering a damaged area with visible mends or patching, turning a pair of jeans into a skirt or adding a pocket to a t-shirt.

Depending on the complexity of your chosen design, you may not have time to complete your project during the workshop. However, if that is the case, we’ll send you away armed with the knowledge to finish it at home.

Skills: This is a hand and machine sewing workshop. Depending on your chosen design, you will learn a range of techniques including garment reconstruction, visible mending, patching,  applique and embellishment.

Level: Suitable for beginners

Bring: Bring a couple of items of clothing that you’d like to work on, so you can choose between them on the day.
