Adjust, Morph, Repair
Sunday 4 March

Sunday 4 March 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Adjust Morph Repair - change the pants you wear

It’s like mouth-to-mouth resuscitation for your clothes!!

Do you long to give your garments a second chance at life but aren’t sure where to start?

Do you want to get creative and turn a dress into a top, turn your trousers into shorts, or shorten the sleeves on a blouse to make it easier or cooler to wear?
Maybe your favourite skirt has a broken zip, or your favourite jumper has some holes, or your jeans are too long!!
Adjust Morph Repair - turn dresses to tops

This top was a dress

Come learn some basic skills to extend the life of your garments. I have been a chronic garment recycler for as long as I can remember and have always loved the challenge of breathing new life into something that is just hanging in the wardrobe!!! Often when  your taste changes or your figure changes or you fall out of love with a garment, a few simple modifications can make it wearable again. This is a perfect solution to getting more use from a garment and saving it from landfill. 

Other tasks that you might like to tackle:
  • Shortening or lengthening a hem
  • Changing a neckline
  • Fixing a split seam
  • Letting out a seam to make a better fit
Tutor: Julie
What to bring: Your garments that need some loving! Thread, any zippers, buttons, etc that will be needed in your repair work!
Time: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
Experience required: Must be familiar with a sewing machine
