Haven't posted in a while, as I've been completely engrossed in a blog I found by accident. It's called New Dress A Day, and it's absolutely brilliant!!
Basically, this girl picks up clothes for 1$ at second hand shops/flea markets/garage sales, and with a sewing machine, scissors and sometimes some dye, makes them into something a lot nicer, that she then wears. Pure talent :-)
Needless to say, it's a great inspiration (and a really addictive read!), and I can't wait to try this myself when I'm a bit handier with the sewing machine :-)
