What’s it all about?

In an effort towards sustainable fashion and adding extra life to our garments – reusing, repurposing, mending and repairing – Stitch & Fix is a monthly night to fix up some fashion favourites using different techniques. 

Darts are a really useful skill to learn, try and perfect! Darts can really add shape to garments, especially useful if you’ve picked up something at the op-shop that could do with being more fitted. Darts can go into tops, but also waist-bands of pants and skirts.

What will we cover?

In this DARTS edition of Stitch & Fix, 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.

Tools and materials will be available, but bring along a project or garment. Otherwise, feel free to practice with scrap fabrics in class.
