We’re heading to the Port Eliot Festival (30th July – 2nd August) to host a range of fun and creative workshops one of which will be ‘Embellish a Seasalt Sailor Shirt’ – so to get everyone in the Port Eliot spirit the teams at the Design Studios were challenged to customise our classic striped shirt, with the winner receiving a ticket to the festival!
Challenge accepted and Sailor Shirts in hand we were told to go forth a create. After a week of snipping, sewing and dying we reassembled in the Show Room for the judging….
Everyone was blown away by the quality of the new shirts, each design was completely different and ranged from embellishments and embroidery to complete redesigns. We were particularly taken with Sarah Jane’s seafarer embroidery – even Pepé the office puppy got a feature.
After a tough round of judging, Laura, our Design Director, announced the winner …
…Lucy for turning her Sailor Shirt into a corset! Well done, Lucy.
All of the custom shirts will be on display at Port Eliot so make sure you pop by and see them. We’ll be running our customising workshops at 10am Friday – Sunday so come along and create your own, we can’t wait to see what you come up with.
