Shopping until you drop? Theslogan certainly does not apply now. But for seamstresses and creative people, it probably didn't apply at all.
The average seamstress probably loves shopping, but we often hear that they are very critical about the quality of clothing. Or they think: Oh, I will do a better job! Especially when it comes to cheap, mass production clothing. The finish is often lousy, the fabric is cheap and probably survives only a few washes and the clothes are by no means unique or personal.
Many reasons to start (learning) sewing yourself.
But where do we shop?
With these search terms on Google you will find what you are looking for:
We are a non-profit sewing-community. We are sharing information, sewing pattern-reviews, book-reviews and lots of sewing guides for sewing-beginners and advanced seamstress.
