CUCITO SU DI TE - dressmaking lab

#cucitosudite #fashiondiy

Have you ever experienced the satisfaction of wearing an item of clothing lovingly made with your own two hands?
It's a unique feeling and one that Cucito su di te - dressmaking lab can help you to explore. We’ve invited a number of creative thinkers from the sewing and DIY fashion industries to share their know-how with aspiring sewing enthusiasts. Find out more about them below!

Make sure to stop by Abilmente Vicenza from 21 to 24 May, where we will be putting on a variety of workshops, demonstrations and live shows designed to whet your appetite for DIY dressmaking!

In collaboration with Gaia Segattini


We are entirely committed to creating a hand-sewn world. In recent years, we have helped hundreds of aspiring seamstresses to create their first handmade garments.
Our mission is twofold: to wave the flag for independent sewing and to convince people that they can do it, even when it seems impossible.
Buckle up, the sky’s the limit!


My small collections of clothing, bags and accessories are entirely handmade, using fabrics that I decorate myself with patterns inspired by my travels. My next stop will be India this coming winter.
And as soon as I have a minute to myself, I dream about my future trips in search of new wonders to add to Tulip’s repertoire!

My blog is all about proving that sewing doesn’t have to be difficult. If anything, it's a force for good, because not only is it incredibly satisfying, it also helps people to de-stress. And that’s not all, the world around us inevitably benefits from it too.
I also want to inspire people and promote the concept of slow fashion, which embraces a DIY mentality and sustainability, in direct contrast to fast fashion.

In my studio, I design children's clothing and accessories. I make nice and colorful clothes coordinated also for the whole family with sizes ranging from newborn to adult. I create them in a limited edition, in order to make them more exclusive and unique for the family.

If you also love color, comfort and quality, you are in the right place! See you at my booth.

Our big dream is to create a slow and sustainable fashion brand, because quality garments need time, sturdy fabrics, hand-stitched details and carefully constructed seams, as well as a dash of spirit, perseverance and love.
We buy small quantities of natural fabrics from Italian companies before jotting down a few ideas that we turn into hand-sewn patterns and prototypes.

...the other creatives are coming. Stay tuned!
