This is exciting. I've just turned 50 (OMG still getting over it) and starting to feel braver about what I wear. I've become very conscious of the ills fast fashion has caused, and am now very choosy about the clothing I purchase - it must be ethically, locally, or me made, which is at last reasonably achievable in Western Australia. We also have some amazing fabric stores popping up - Potter & Co linens in North Perth, and Woven Stories handwovens, handprints and naturally dyed Indian cottons - so I'm looking forward to supporting local businesses. I just did an audit of my TG patterns and found 32 all told - purchased and Sychil - this is my permission to get on with it! Looking forward to the change-ups and hacks.
