So sew

Recently I wrote up a trend report for a client, and apparently digital prints are going to be super cool for spring. I have an excellent digital print top from Urban Outfitters that I bought at a charity shop. Everything about it is perfect except... for the way it fits.

Hope is not lost however, since I just came across this press release from the charity TRAID:

Sew bad? Come along to TRAID’s free sewing workshops, and learn to sew good!

Sew Good workshops are run by charity and eco fashion hero TRAID (Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development) to help people take control of their wardrobe and extend the life of their clothes by teaching basic mending, adjusting and remaking skills.

Workshops are open to everyone, regardless of their skill level and take place every month in store at TRAID Shepherds Bush. For night owls, TRAID also runs an evening workshop called the Sew Good Lock In at its flagship store in Camden.

Bring a garment and the TRAID Sew Good team will help you to remake it into a gorgeous and unique piece you’ll love again. Participants learn their way around a sewing machine, and are initiated into some of the remaking secrets of TRAID’s recycled fashion label TRAIDremade which uses old clothes and textiles that would other be thrown away to create beautiful ethical fashion.

Booking is essential. To reserve a place contact Lyla Patel / 020 8733 2591
