stitch and colour a silkymerino tube dress


Enjoy a day with India Flint, botanical alchemist and peripatetic seamstress, at the Poet’s Ode, stitching and dyeing a fabulous Silkymerino tube dress, one of the most useful things to have in your wardrobe whether enjoying the comforts of home or for the wandering life of a traveller. Wear it as a sleeveless shift on gentle days or build layers over and under it as the season slips slowly into winter.

We’ll cut and sew in the morning and then tuck into a lovely light lunch as the cauldron works its magic on the bundled dresses. You will be supplied with a length of Silkymerino, a handful of lovely silk+cotton yarn with which to stitch the seams and some extra pieces of silk in case you’d like to embellish the neckline or add a tiny pocket for a poem.



PLEASE NOTE : WE WILL BE USING COMMUNAL DYEPOTS – THE COLOUR OF YOUR GARMENT WILL BE DETERMINED BY WHAT IS INSIDE THE BUNDLES, NOT NECESSARILY BY THE BREW IN THE CAULDRON
