Are you over purchasing clothes without knowing how they were made? Do you prefer to shop ethically and friendly, by recycling items and deep-diving in op-shops? Or are you a sewing-savvy styler who only wears your own designs? As long as you’re keen to be a part of the slow fashion revolution, this step-by-step workshops where you can learn how to stitch your very own linen jumpsuit is totally for you!

Hosted by Common Stitch at Biome, Paddington, the workshop will run for four hours on Saturday, April 14th. The class will be led by the local and sustainable design team, who will provide the jumpsuit sewing pattern with instructions, light snacks and refreshments, and stitch-by-stitch guidance on your creation.

The fabric for your linen jumpsuit will be provided by large fashion houses where their leftover fabrics were destined for landfill. By using the pre-loved fabrics for your brand-new jumpsuit, Common Stitch hope to bring awareness to sustainable fashion and help our environment at the same time! The sizes can range from 6 to 20, and your own sewing machine should be brought along with you (or a machine can be hired from Common Stitch for an additional $20!).

There are limited spaces so bookings are essential, which can be made through the website here. All participants are encouraged to have an intermediate sewing ability, and will also receive 10% off in-store purchases on the day.
