The landlord of my studio just presented me with eight black bin bags of fabric samples, for me to sort through and do as I please with.
I rummaged through and grabbed everything lace, geometric, black and white, and deliriously printed, so now have lots of bits of jazzy cloth, that I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing with yet. I may well be stitching some frilly/print-happy detailing on a few of the more neglected items of my wardrobe, as well as mustering up some detachable collars, bow ties and neck ties.
Expect to see lots of botched DIY up-cycling jobs appearing soon.
