“Simple A-Line Pattern Stripes!”

We’re loving all the colour at Novis, New York. We spotted this stunning A-line skirt with four bold colour sections and think it’s a great idea for using some old fabrics that you might have stashed somewhere or might pick up from a local thrift store or textile recycler.

Bold brights are a must for a fresh, sunny look, right?

“Patch-up Pockets!”

We’re loving all the mix ‘n’ match print and denim inspiration at Tsumori Chisato Pre-Fall 18, Japan, this week. If you haven’t ‘patched up’ yet you could start with a giant-sized denim pocket on an old skirt that has been hanging in the wardrobe for awhile. We all agree that contrasting shades of indigo make for a surprisingly modern look.

Patchwork Rainwear

Have you visited your local textile recyclers (ours is here) to collect some waterproof fabrics to make your own Patchwork Rainwear? With all the rain on its way, it’s one stylish solution worthy of our Slow Textiles Routes or invest in local and employ a local seamstress to create a professional version for you. We recommend our resident Textiles Hub London award-winning seamtress, Annalisa Middleton. Feel free to request a meeting with her via our form.
