We Had a Blast at the Workshop!

Upcycling Workshop

Last week I was extremely nervous because my upcycling  DIY Your Clothes Workshop was being held on the same day as Lee Kuan Yew's funeral. I was wondering whether I should cancel or go on with it, or would the participants even turn up. In the end I decided to go ahead, and at 4.30pm when the sirens went off, all of us stopped what we were sewing and had one minute's silence.

The ladies who took part were very creative, and some were adventurous as well - we had creations ranging from a pair of jeans turned into a skirt to a complete reconstruction of a dress into a skirt with zipper and trimmings. The rain definitely didn't our spirits, and it didn't stop us from making a trip to the New2U Thriftstore for materials for the refashions!  Watch the video below to see what it was like.

Many thanks to Raye for helping on the day, and to Bangz for coming into work on a Sunday to open up the Materials Design Centre for us.

This lady removed the cowel neckline and the sleeves to make a sleevless top.

The dress was refashioned into a tube top.

This dress is made from a combination of a top and half
a dress. She then added sequins along the neckline.

The dress was shortened into a top. Zips were then
added on the side - they were too!

  2. Thanks, Whitney. I believe that everyone can sew something; it just takes time and patience to improve the skills.
