Camisole workshops – Feb and March
The first Emiliana camisole has been sold and the first workshop has been completed! The lovely ladies that I have been working with love the style, fit and shape of the camisole. We upcycled some unwanted t-shirts into new cami’s by cutting away the sleeves and the neckline and then adding stretch lace, like in the photo above. This one was upcycled from an unwanted t-shirt of my brothers! The great thing with the cami is that you don’t need as much stretch in the fabric as you do with the knickers, so the range of fabrics that you can use is much wider. It still needs to be jersey, like t-shirt fabric, but you’ll find that some jersey’s have stretch in the way that they have been produced, even if they don’t contain elastane.
I have just arranged the following camisole workshops:
Wednesday 27th February – Upcycling Camisole workshop 7pm-9.30pm – Social Fabric, Totnes, Devon
(For this workshop you will bring along an old t-shirt or stretch garment that you would like to upcycle into a new camisole.)
Saturday 30th March – Camisole Workshop – 1.30pm-4pm Makeplace, Norwich, Norfolk
(In this workshop you will learn how to sew a camisole from scratch using new jersey fabric from Anglia Fashion Fabrics.)
I will also be creating make-your-own kits for the camisole, so feel free to email me if you would like to order one. Email Emma on firstname.lastname@example.org
