Rewritten Reloved Workshop
To celebrate both our 5th Anniversary, and the launch of Rewritten ReLoved, we are running our very first workshop where you can bring your Rewritten dress and jazz it up for the party season.
Date: Tuesday 23rd Nov
Location: Rewritten Showroom, 121 Monier Road, E3 2PS
Join co-founder Fran for an evening of embellishments in which you will be learning how to:
Shorten your dress
We will teach you how to hem your dress to make it into a midi or a mini, depending on what style you would prefer. Each person will have a dummy they can put their dress on, and we will talk you through the steps of cutting and pinning up the hem. We will demonstrate how to stitch the hem on a machine, and if you have a machine at home, you can take it away with you with the skills you need to whiz it up at home. If you'd rather us do this, leave it with us and we will have you dress ready in 1-2 weeks for you to come and collect from our showroom.
Adding Ostritch feather trim
Who doesn't love a feather trim?! We will also be showing you how to add an ostrich feather trim in the same colour as your dress, which can be sewn onto the dress when the shortening/hemming is taking place. You can opt out if this isn't your thing!
Jazz up your dress with embroidery
The final part of the workshop will teach you how to customise your dress with a variety of embroidered and embellished patches and cute crystal beads. We will teach you everything you need to know for the basics of hand sewing, and you can take the kit home with you if you don't finish it on the night.
Refreshment and snacks will be served on the evening!
