The fashion skills crash course. “A full day of workshops (10am – 5pm) from top Dublin designers that will teach you the basic skills you need to make that dream dress!”

10 – 11am – the art of design: a short workshop on fashion figure drawing and design concept
11 – 1pm – Pattern Drafting: a beginners crash course in the basics of drafting a garment pattern
1-2pm Lunch: In Smock Alley Cafe, lunch is included in the price too!
2-3.30 – Basic Alterations: A hands-on workshop in basic and beginners alterations…buttons, seams and hems.

For more info go to the re-dress website. I think it sounds like a total investment day, the €60 you spend will help you save a fortune on clothes that you either no-longer like or that no longer fit. Instead of going out and buying new stuff we can learn how to update, modify and change old clothes into something amazing plus being ethical and environmentally friendly. I’m in!
