Sewing with The Essentials Club
Sewing a Slip Dress with Madeline from The Essentials Club
Date/Time: September 20th 2020 10am
The Travelling Kimono Boutique. Shop 1 19-21 Sunshine Beach Rd Noosa Heads (The Pavilion)
Come and enjoy a beautiful morning learning the basic techniques of sewing a slip dress using beautiful natural fibres from headstock fabrics. We will have yummy raw treats from Rose bud and Finch and delicious organic teas from Mayde Tea.
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 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.
We will provide you with beautiful deadstock fabrics that you can choose from a range of colours to make your piece. (please refer to picture to see the colours available) These fabrics are a linen/cotton blend, if you prefer to bring your own fabric instead you are more than welcome to.
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!
