ID : 8673   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Coco Chanel is known for taking a simple men’s shirt and converting it to an iconic piece of fashion. In this class you will learn about the growing “refashioning” movement and the possibilities it offers for creativity. You will be using classic, oversized men's button up shirts to re-envision and refashion into another garment, and create your own iconic fashion!

Using the men’s shirts you choose, and body forms, sketching or simple pattern pieces, you will learn the best techniques for deconstructing existing garments, and sewing techniques to recreate a new garment.  There will be several examples to help students think outside the box of what is possible.

This class is for experienced sewists looking to push their creative, design and sewing skills further!

Students need to bring two, oversized men’s button-up shirts to class, and basic sewing supplies. Please see the Class Letter for a detailed list of items required for class.
