A perfect project to do while you are in your own home. Let’s each bring an unloved garment to our online session and share ideas as a group about how to give each item a new life. Select your garment beforehand, and make a note of what you like and don’t like about it. Then, we’ll do some mini crowdsourcing to find a great solution for each of us.
Bring a garment that you would like to alter or redesign. You might also want to bring a seam ripper, scissors and pins so that you can get started on your refashion.
