Whilst whipping up an assortment of leftovers for dinner last night it got me thinking. There was a time when an ethos of make do and mend wasn’t just a modern day sentiment, it was a way of life. In my beloved Grandma’s era when women found a hole in their clothes they got out the needle and thread and mended it. If they only had vegetables and stale bread for tea they made do.  There was no fast fashion or quick fix and everyone got along fine, in fact they got creative – fashioning…

My sheer blouse and skirt are thrifted from Salvos Stores in Sydney, as is my back pack…
