Tailors Arm - Sewing workshop

76 Botany Rd
Waterloo NSW 2017
The Nest Creative Space

Tuesday 24 November from 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Make a pair of Tailor’s arms for your mannequin.

Tailor’s arms are very useful for draping, fitting and presenting your garments. They are a great tool for every pattern cutter and sewist to have. They have long been used by fashion industry professionals to better fit the sleeves of a shirt or jacket, or the straps of an off the shoulder dress. The tailor’s arms give a realistic shaped arm to fill the sleeve of your garment. We will be cutting and sewing a pair of arms in calico with toy stuffing.
