Course Description

Altering and Upcycling your Wardrobe (10wks)

Liberties College

We all have things in our wardrobe that don’t fit or just don’t work on you anymore. This course shows you how to give your pre-loved garments a new lease of life to turning them into modern wearable pieces. To start with students will learn how to do simple alterations like hemming a garment or sewing on a button properly. Next you will be shown how to refit a garment and replace a zip. As you grow in confidence we will tackle more experimental tasks and try completely changing and upcycling a garment to create something more suitable for your wardrobe. The objective of the course will be to create a few more garments for your wardrobe and in the process learn the skills to continue making changes to your clothes and transform or upcycle your older wardrobe items. In order to carry out practical sewing, embellishment and finishing tasks the college recommends that students supply the following:
