I thought it might be nice, as the new year is nearly upon us (2014!) to do a mini review of some of the clothes I’ve made this year.
I think a lot of people take the New Year as an opportunity to wash the slate clean and start things afresh but sometimes we are too eager to throw out the slightly tarnished and replace with the shiny and new and assume that will automatically be better. So, before I launch into a stinging attack on our modern consumerist throw-away culture that alienates even myself, I decided to focus this post not on the new clothes I’ve made but the alterations I’ve made to old clothes, particularly those I’ve bought from second-hand shops.
I quite like buying clothes that are far too big for me and taking them in, knowing I have plenty of extra fabric to work with.
