  • Part of the problem is that in much of the Western world, tailoring and fixing things is so expensive that you'd rather buy a new product and that's just ridiculous!!

  • I grew up on thrift store clothes, and with mother who knew how to sew. As we grew up my sisters continued on with the thrifting whereas I started to learn my mothers sewing skills. My sisters both purchase the majority of their wardrobe from thrift stores and I make clothing for myself that is made to last. I use the scraps whenever I can (although I must admit, I do throw some away) and I use my sewing skills to alter or fix clothing for friends and family. None of us purchase fast fashion anymore. It's saves the environment AND it saves us a ton of money.

  • As a guy who's always had an interest in clothes, I decided it was time I looked into making my own. I've bought a machine and when the shops open up again here in the UK, I'm heading out and buying up thread and needles to get going. It does make sense as times are teaching us that we can't just expect everything to just be there for us, we have to make fair choices, be resourceful and aware of what happens to the stuff we thoughtlessly throw away. High five, Makayla!

  • I was talking to a friend only yesterday about wanting to learn how to sew so I could repair clothes and make new ones and then this video pops up! I love her energy and vibe, she seems like she'd be a cool person to be friends with. And what she's doing is inspirational - I hope she has a lot of success. I love to see people pushing back against fast fashion. Fast fashion is a major problem ethically and environmentally and unfortunately it's something that often gets swept under the rug, when it really shouldn't.
