    Love this! I just bought your book on Amazon and super excited. I hate clothes shopping – love the clothes, hate the work to get stuff plus it’s ridiculous how much one shirt can cost. So after using up some gift cards today (from my 40th BDay last Oct) I will be hitting the goodwill tomorrow and as a small/petite person, will absolutely need to hem and recreate which is actually exciting. Ironically it’s more work but somehow more fun. Perhaps that’s because I like sewing, I can save money, and it will fit the way I want it to. Thanks so much for your blog and doing what you do.
