Alter Ego: Darts for Clothes Alterations with Robyn

This class has passed
This class has passed

Darts are a really useful alteration technique, and this class let’s you learn, try and perfect them! If you’ve picked up something from an op-shop or a friend, darts can make all the difference in shaping different garments for your own body and style.

Darts can really add shape to garments, especially if it’s something oversized that you want to make more fitted. We often think of darts in tops and busts, but they can also be added to the waist-bands of pants and skirts.

Tools and materials will be available, but we suggest bringing along a garment to add darts to. Or feel free to practice with scrap fabrics in class.

What will we cover?

In an effort towards sustainable fashion and adding extra life to our garments – reusing, repurposing, mending and repairing – Robyn Bunting runs classes to help us fix up our fashion favourites using different techniques.

In this DARTS class, bring along a sewing project or garment in need of darts and access the tools, materials and know-how to set you up to complete your project.

Your teacher Robyn Bunting is an experienced Film and TV costume maker, has some good stories and loves a challenge. She’ll help you identify sewing and mending methods and materials to progress your project.
