Hi! I’m Elena.
Since I first picked up my sewing machine, I’ve wondered if perhaps this ideal of a whole wardrobe full of high street bargains is a bit overrated. Inspired by other members of the sewing blogosphere, I dived straight in the deep end and abstained from buying any ready-made clothing in October 2011. My first pledge finished in July 2012, but I’m still sewing away.
When I’m not spending quality time with my seam-ripper and getting pins stuck in my feet, I work as a social media editor at the Guardian.
