Hi! I’m Vicky and I’m sewing and knitting my way to a handmade wardrobe in beautiful Yorkshire.
Sewing + Sustainability = Sewstainability. I sew to create clothes that actually fit and I try to factor in environmental issues while I do. I try to be mindful of keeping my sewing sustainable but I have also found that the clothes that get most wear are the ones I’m head over heels in love with! My brand of sustainable sewing focuses on longevity – making special garments that will last many many wears and making sure I use up every scrap in the process. Sometimes that means using new fabrics sometimes that means refashioning or shopping secondhand, I hope to find a good balance that I am comfortable with. I try to sew with scraps and natural materials and inspire others to do the same but I am in no way perfect! I hope we can all inspire each other, even small changes to the way we sew can make a difference!
Please give my blog a follow either on here or on Bloglovin’. I would love for you to join me on this journey towards being a little bit more sustainable in my crafting!
