Now that the new year is here, I have been window-shopping on my favourite clothes websites to see what’s new and if there’s anything that would suit me. (I would do this in person if it weren’t for the big freeze of 2010.) I’ve not spotted much so far, which is no bad thing, but the odd thing here and there has caught my eye.
But then I stumbled across Mena’s new project, Sew Weekly:
“By the end of 2010, I hope to have a closet filled only with clothes that I have sewn myself (with a few exceptions).”
WOW! My favourite so far is this pretty green dress, and it’s interesting to read about how she’s sourcing vintage fabrics and patterns. I’m not sure this would work as well in the UK (outside of larger cities like London, at any rate), but I suppose I do find the odd bit of fabric or a handful of pretty buttons in the charity shops every now and again.
