I'm rapidly gaining a collection of old vintage woolen garments.
I was talking to a lady in the local op shop about using old clothing to cut up & make new garments (no point using fancy words like 'upcycling' to grannies at the op shop....just a new word for something they have been doing for years anyway). She said she had a few things put aside out the back because of broken zippers & the like....off she went & returned with a little pile to get me started on these lovely woolen skirts & pants....
The best bit is I can incorporate all those fancy pockets into new garments without ever having to sew so well myself!
