sewing rebellion november- winter mending!

after a few bumpy months, sewing rebellion brooklyn’s november meeting was a success: winter mending was achieved by many, coats got new buttons, and a unidentified cozy garment came into the world!

the key for this session was wearability: the aforementioned coats will no longer drive their owners insane with boredom, an original custom tailored garment from ghana was taken out to allow its owner to continue to enjoy it, and a dress started the journey from one-time party outfit to comfy staple.

see the photos and revel in winter fashion! renewing and reworking is year-round with sewing skills!

this is doreen’s altered top, taken out to fit her, with a detail of the seam she reworked.

here is a coat with new buttons for the front and the cuffs, selected to mirror each other but not match. i will learn to fine-focus my camera soon.

join us dec 20th for more mending and creations!
