Darn it!

I work in the fashion industry but some days you'd think I worked at the dump. I tend to wear my clothes until they fall off me! I'm the same with shoes and it really doesn't bother me if my clothes are ripped. Maybe it harks back to my punk teenage years when if it didn't have holes it wasn't cool. Last week, I went to a lecture on darning at our local cloth club (a textile lovers group) and it inspired me to darn my black cardigan that has holes all over it.

This is the sleeve and under the arm after I started on the first hole....




and after...


I've been inspired by tomofholland, his work is amazing and I love the way he doesn't try and disguise the mend but celebrates it.
I predict a lot of darning in my future....
