Make Do and Mend

In the research for my new collection I came across some great books about 'make do and mend'. How to darn, how to keep moths from your wardrobe, how to increase the size of a garment; in the Second World War years in Britain, many leaflets were made to help families cope with the crisis and still dress decently.
It's very inspiring, and fun; if you look at it. And also very sustainable: repairing something rather than throwing it away and buy something new. In those days they had no choice; we have.
