One of the best skills I ever learned as a teenager was how to sew. I was just generally interested and made up a lot of stuff in high school (ooooh boy Grade 10 fashion show! There were handmade wings... That's all I need to say, I think, haha). I did at one point do a short 6 week course at a sewing store to learn some basic sewing machine technique and my mum taught me some basic stitchwork. Needless to say, I'm no professional seamstress but I've saved a lot of time and money doing my own alterations. The only things I generally take in is changing zippers (so finicky! but totally doable) or alterations on really fancy clothes. I think I'll put some basic stitchwork on here soon... To be continued...
