DIY

It's not always easy finding good vintage, let alone finding it in the right size and colour. One thing that I have discovered is that there is an abundance of vintage patterns available in op' shops and charity stores which is a great solution. Over time I have collected many styles, some of which are very relevant to today's trends, such as pussy bow blouses, bomber style jackets, and high rise skirts and shorts.The patterns are worth buying for the illustrations on the front alone. Vintage patterns can be picked up for around 50c each and to cut the cost further, you could cut up second hand garments made from great fabrics and rework them into a new piece. Some op' shops even sell bundles of unused vintage fabrics and jars of unusual buttons and trimmings. Unique fashion doesn't have to be expensive.
