In conjunction with the Brisbane City Council’s sustainability project ‘Revive’, we present Hem It Up, a free sustainable fashion workshop that helps you give your old wardrobe a new life!

Have any pants, jeans, skirts or dresses that are just too long, dragging along the ground or at awkward length? Bring them along to learn how to hem them up by hand and sewing machine. With these new skills you’ll never have to retire otherwise perfectly good clothes to the back of the closet again.


  • We will take a look at the items you brought and work first on the one you most want fixed or that you can most confidently fix with guidance
  • Feel free to bring along your own repair sewing kit or sewing machine if you want advice on using

What you'll get

  • Access to basic repairs materials (thread, needles, scissors, seam ripper)
  • Access to sewing machines and over lockers as needed
  •  Pro guidance and skills to tackle your alteration dilemma

what to bring

  •  2-3 items that need some work
  •  If replacing any missing or broken components bring one that best matches the original
  •  If adding any extra trimmings (lace, buttons, etc) bring them along
