1st sewing-café in BrusselsBrussels
Rue Solvay 30
Sewing machines for hire by the hour
I come here to fix the hem on my trousers or the lining on my curtains or skirt. I hire a machine for €10/hr. You can get help from a seamstress for a little extra. If it's your first time in front of a machine, why not book onto a beginner's sewing workshop (6 hrs)? Once this first step is taken, you will be able to join in the two other workshops without any worries, in which you make your own skirt or recreate a favourite item from your wardrobe.
Young designer boutique
The sewing section is the novelty of the shop, but we should also mention the boutique area that sells very pretty items by Belgian designers, amongst others. The prices are really affordable. Les Midinettes also stocks a selection of clothing from Spanish and English stylists... a clothing line created by Isabelle, a Belgian stylist and one of the two founding partners of the business. Addiction guaranteed!
Open Monday and Thursday, 12:00-20:00 Open Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:00-19:00 Open Saturday, 10:00-18:00
I'm mad about food. I'm a Brussels native by adoption and I started a fun and girly cooking blog. I decrypt all of the new trends that will eventually show up in your plate! My little extra: surprising culinary discoveries I share with you with great zest and appetite.
