Term Project: Design Your Dolls Wardrobe
Give your Teddies & Dolls their very own wardrobe this spring! This term you will design and create a number of sustainable pieces to add to your dolls wardrobe using a selection of fun and vibrant offcuts of fabric and trims. As well as hand sewing and machine skills, making clothes for dolls and teddy bears will encourage creativity whilst learning dressmaking skills in an economical and fun way.
Some of the specific skills include:
Zero-waste sustainable customisations, heat press customisation, embroidery, hand sewing buttons, and inserting elastic!
What we provide:
Expert tuition, from practicing pattern cutters, fashion designers etc. who have degrees in relevant art and fashion courses.
The use of new and fully serviced Janome 725s sewing machines, scissors, tools and threads etc.
Students can use free donated fabrics as part of our Circularity Bank, bring in their own or buy from our fabric shop.
At the end of term they will come home with:
Design sheets, sustainable fabric awareness and technical sewing samples.
A completed garment and/or accessory designed and made by them.
Certificate of completion (over 80% attendance).
