Every gal needs a staple slip dress number in their wardrobe. Wear it with shoulders bare and sun-kissed in the warmer months with a statement piece necklace. Or when there is a bit of a chill to the air (ya know the bit less than a balmy day we sporadically get in this paradise we live in) team it with a white baby-t and cons. Making your own fashion is saaaa sustainable, and we are all team sustainability here!
So best you start that fabric shopping ladies because Madeline Rawlings from The Essential Club is coming to the studio to guide you through a step by step DIY guide in making a minimal, elegant slip dress. You’ll come out the other end with a custom made garment that you can strut down the street and respond to compliments with a hair flick and a casual “Oh this lil number? I made it myself.” Even better, you'll get the pattern to go on creating more, why not make a terracotta linen number, one in a lighter floral number, and cos you're gonna be a full sewing curator after this class, make your sista a dress for her b'day!
This class is totally fine for beginners too! It’s a pretty straight forward process that involves basic sewing knowledge (being able to sew a straight line) and going through it properly once, will then give you the ability and confidence to whip up all the slip dresses you want!
Sewing is such a practical and rewarding activity. Getting lost in the creative and technical process is like a creative's mindfulness meditation, as you become fully consumed by your project and lost in the moment. Then the reward of getting to wear your creation, knowing the time, effort and love that went into is an indescribable feeling.
