Upcycled Denim skirt

Presented by Textiles West at Textiles West

The instructor for this class will be Cecelia Harris.

Find a use for those jeans that are no longer mendable! We'll be making use of the denim by creating yardage that can be used for many projects - a bag, a skirt, a pillow.

Not your typical 70's refashion, the results are boutique-worthy.

Student supply list:

This classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class.

For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.

Instructor Bio:

Why I sew: When I think of all the reasons I sew – saving money, getting a good fit, not being limited to what’s in the store, being conscious of how my clothing is produced – the reason above all is that I can be unique.

I know that when I choose my own pattern and pair it with a fabric, I will be creating a garment that no one else has. I can also create home goods that are as individual as I am. In a day and age where uniformity is difficult to avoid, creating my own sewn garments is a way to express my voice.
