People are divided into two types. It is easier for the first to throw out the old thing and buy a new one, for the second – to remake the old one or to sew this new one himself. And the point is not that the former are lazy, but that the latter are creators. They might be happy not to try, but the needle itself jumps into their hands, and the ideas of new outfits just creep into their heads.
We admire sewing masterpieces and we want you to have the opportunity to see them and get inspired.
