My name is Charlene and I’m a Trial Manager by day, very amateur seamstress by night. I’m fairly new to sewing having only bought a machine in 2012, but since then I have been absolutely hooked.
‘One Year, One Wardrobe’ is basically a personal challenge to sew all of my clothes for a whole year. 12 calendar months of cutting, pinning and stitching!
But why bother when I live 30 minutes away from one of Europe’s largest shopping centres?
1) I hope to learn loads of new sewing skills along the way;
2) It will be better on my bank balance and;
3) I like the ethical/sustainable aspect of sewing my own clothes
So there we go ‘One Year, One wardrobe’, let’s see what happens.
