We all have items of clothing sitting in our wardrobes unworn, because they don’t fit anymore or they simply need a little love. Whether it’s a cherished vintage item, a back of the wardrobe lurker or an op-shop find that could do with adjusting or needs sprucing up, a few basic sewing skills and some thought will get your old favourites or shopping mistakes ready to be cherished again.
We can all learn to love the clothes we already own more and work harder to make them last.
