Brin de Cousette, la mercerie - bar à couture

Brin De Cousette

The new HQ of fashionistas, this is where it’s happening. Since at each new season you have a precise idea of the perfect little skirt in an it-print or if you dream of customizing your darling Uniqlo pullover to give it the allure of a "Chanel" cardigan… We have the solution. Because, knowing how to sew is the new way to go.

However you still need to tame the sewing machine and learn how to decode a pattern. Claire and Bérangère, two confirmed seamstresses with incredible patience share their know-how at Brin de Cousettes. The workshops are organized by levels: from beginner (3h initiation courses, 55€) to more expert techniques once the basics have been acquired (having fun in 2h30, 46€).

Result? You go home with the piece of clothing or the object customized then and there (scarves, tote-bag, cushion cover, trapeze skirt, jersey blouse …). No worries, all the equipment is supplied for free.

Signing up? At the shop or via the online planning on

The plus: the notions area to stock up on fabric and patterns without necessarily following a workshop (fabrics, threads, buttons, ribbons…).

Cherry on the cake, there is even a tea salon corner with an excellent selection from the neighboring merchant, the ideal place to talk about fashion (count 3,5 for a tea) !

Tuesday to Friday from 12:30 pm to 7pm. Saturday from 10am to 7pm. Closed Sunday and Monday.
