Stitch, Sew and Shimmy - Burlesque Costume workshop with Sweet Burlesque

There is nothing more beautiful than burlesque costume covered in rhinestones and glitter. The shiny sparkles, the glitz & glam look utterly fabulous – it must cost a bomb to create something as decadent...

Well fear not! Turn that H&M lingerie set into something SPECTACULAR with Stitch, Sew & Shimmy – Burlesque Costume Workshop with Sweet Burlesque.

In this two hour workshop you will learn how to decorate and glitterize your bras and knickers to make a burlesque costume a Showgirl can only dream about.

We have the talented costume designer Luise Kristensen, student of Sweet Burlesque and creator of most of Sweet Burlesque show team costumes, to teach you all the tricks and creativity to create your own beautiful costume.

Luise’s ability to e.g. take a boring old bra and transform it into a decadent Burlesque costume is second to none.

In this workshop, Luise will work towards 3 core objectives:

  • To build peoples confident in costume making

  • To help you become more creative with your clothing

  • To learn basic sewing skills to give costumes a unique and interesting edge.  

To take part in this workshop, you will need:

  • Bra

  • Knickers

  • Ribbons, pearls, trim, old clothes, fabric stores, etc (we will also bring some)

  • Thread

  • Needle

  • Glue gun (if you have)

  • Scissors

  • Measurement tape

If you would prefer to come and watch, you are also more than welcome.
