do it yourself then.

i'm mad about sewing, but until i can show you some of my own projects, i want to show you a few other ladies who are really inspiring with their making do and mending skills.
one at a time though, because i'm lazy that way. so this will be part #1.

here's the first... jessica from vintage portalen.


i reference this lady a lot because she's just so talented.
what i particularly love about her work is her attention to detail - she sews faithfully fifties-style, down to stitching by hand in places where these days we would just roll a sewing machine all over it. this makes her garments as true to an original fifties hand-made garment as possible.
