Trend Alert: Sewing

In a bid to learn a useful 'life skill', I have been learning to sew. Call me old fashioned, but learning how to take up dresses and hem trousers has been really inspirational and I now look through my wardrobe thinking 'how can I customise that?' - trust me, nothing has escaped my scrutiny. Sewing is not techinically a trend as it is ever-present and not subject to seasonal fads, however my 'credit crunch inspired' willingness to save money, and a low key Easter weekend at home inspired me to customise many garments.

  1. oh, me too! I really got into sewing this year and am still practising. costumizing is really fun. I also love standing in front of my closet, looking through everything and finally getting an idea what to do with the old shirt I've never worn et cetera :)

  3. Cheers to that! I bought a brand new sewing machine over two years ago and I still haven't learned to thread it properly. I tried and messed it up and since then it has just sat there. I need a tutor!! I'm desperate to learn!

    (How lame am I?)
