Hacket Jacket - From Op Shop to Couture with Trish Bygott and Susie Vickery - Sat 2 June


Over two session Susie and Trish will take you through the process of taking a jacket apart and altering it into a softer, more fitted style. Learn how to refit the sleeves, alter the shoulder width, add darts and pleats, and shorten it. Then add embellishment with embroidery and appliqué.

Basic sewing skills required.

Participants are invited to exhibit their jacket as part of the Worn Out Worn Art Wearable Art Exhibition at Midland Junction Arts Centre later in the year.
