DIYcouture: making DIY easy
Oooooh I just love stumbling across a website that supports the handmade revolution, bucks the concept of "fast fashion" and makes DIY less daunting and more accessible. DIYcouture is a UK based website which does away with scary, complex sewing patterns in favour of booklets filled with easy to read, simple, visual instructions. The philosophy behind it is to encourage people to get involved in the craft and fun of 3D creation. Each DIYcourture collection consists of 12 classic, staple pieces that can be encorprated into any wardrobe. The latest collection includes a cloak, a jumpsuit, a pleated skirt, a gathered dress, a hoody and more.
Now the only question is....what will I try my hands at first?
