As The Rolling Stones say, “you can’t always get what you want” especially when it come to plus size fashion! But that’s never stopped us and here at Plus London, we have developed ways to get what we need!
Having a few sewing skills up your sleeve opens new doors and gives you a control over your wardrobe, so for those of you with a crafty mind, here’s a heads up about the sewing workshops on Sunday.
Erin of Miss Lacy Ltd will be passing on her knowledge of making clothes for our diverse and gorgeous, shapely bodies. Common problems like a waistband that too big, a pair of trousers or skirt that’s too long or shoulders that are too wide can be fixed with a few clever stitches. Bring along your clothes along and she‘ll show you a few techniques to try.
Michelle will be bringing her box of pretty and shiny things to teach you how to transform clothes from blah to Boo-yah! She’ll be taking inspiration from the themes of rockabilly and punk but the only limit will be your imagination. Dig out an unloved item, bring it along and transform it into something unique!
