This activity has finished already

From 8 April 2011 to 14 February 2012 at the Museum of Costume and Lace.

Prior to the advent of the sewing machine in 1850, all clothes and their accessories were sewn by hand. A century ago, girls and boys learned how to sew, crochet, knit and so on. Today, while most clothes are factory-made, work done by hand is taking centre stage once more.

Handmade invites you to discover clothes of all shapes and sizes:

  • ABC charts
  • cut-out patterns
  • hats by the milliners of Brussels
  • men's waistcoats
  • women's corsets
  • dresses and coats

Opening hours

  • the whole week (except on Wednesdays), from 10 am to 5 pm
  • closed on 1 May, 1 November, 11 November and 25 December
