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.

Fancy joining me in this self-made mission? Feel free to comment, email me or tweet me @elenacresci with your thoughts.

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.

    I love your blog, what a brilliant pledge! I am planning to start making my own stuff as soon as I get a sewing machine. Look out, charity shops and vintage shops, here I come! I was wondering, with only a few weeks to go, what will be your first purchase from the shops? Not long now!
