Let me ask you a question (or more)

Remember how satisfying it was to make your own clothes? You could have the latest styles, but you made them in fabric you had chosen. You never saw yourself walking down the street.

Are you sick of seeing yourself walking down the street? Ready to try your hand at DIY.

Do you pick up clothes in the store and think, this is made so badly, I could do better, if I just knew how?
