Saturday Upcycling Course – Make a Tie Skirt.

September 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Come along on our up-cycling day and learn to make a skirt from men’s ties. You will be making either a mini or knee length skirt from men’s ties, with an up-cycled jeans waistband.

We will be covering accurate measuring, cutting and sewing the ties into the skirt, adding a zip and the waistband.

We can provide a limited selection of (mostly blue!) ties and some jeans waistband, however if you have any ties it would be a good idea to bring them along, and a pair of unwanted or worn out jeans that you know fits you would be a good idea as well!

a sample skirt is available in the shop if you want to look at what we will be doing, this is the same design and techniques as the tie skirts I sell in cheeky sew and sew.

A full day course, we will have a break for lunch, which is not provided but you can bring something along or there are plenty of places a minutes walk away.


Full day course: 10-5pm. £60, including materials.
