"I don't know how to sew!"
"But do you want to learn?"
At last Saturday's Restyle Your Wardrobe Workshop, I had an amazing time with the participants. The most memorable was Lucie, who had come in with no sewing experience and had no idea what she wanted to make. She did have a few old t-shirts that her husband loved but were now getting thin. After a bit of brainstorming, we decided on getting some cushion covers made for her home - something practical and that she would use at home. Not only did she end up learning how to make cushion covers but she learnt how to use the sewing machine and sew a zipper!
Nasyitah brought many beautiful and colourful clothes that no longer fit her and she enjoyed turning her COS dress that she thrifted, into a a lovely reversible bag.
Lara also created a bag from her friend's old top. I love how she ended up making a contrasting strap to give the bag some colour. She also made a skirt from her maxi dress too.
Osty had a great time creating a top and skirt from her swapped dress. She hadn't sewn something this complex before either, and Rachel transformed her dress into a pair of shorts.
So, conclusion? If you think you can't or won't be able to sew? Think again. These amazing ladies had a lovely time transforming their clothes, and what's more important, they enjoyed the process.
