Jen­nif­fer Tay­lor talks #sewingrev­o­lu­tion

Af­ter sewing my first make, my wed­ding dress, then ap­pear­ing on the Great Bri­tish Sewing Bee af­ter only a year of sewing ex­pe­ri­ence, you could say I’m ad­dicted to sewing. It’s a huge part of my life now that I sew for a liv­ing. Whether that’s run­ning work­shops, demon­strat­ing for events, or writ­ing, I’m de­ter­mined to get the na­tion sewing! That’s why I started #sewingrev­o­lu­tion – sewing em­pow­ers you to feel bet­ter about your­self, as well as how you look, by mak­ing clothes that ac­tu­ally fit. Through my sewing jour­ney, I hope to in­spire oth­ers to pick up a nee­dle and thread. I’m work­ing with Kor­bond, #lovey­our­clothes and Mol­lie Makes at The Handmade Fair to prove you don’t need to go far to get started! Just head to your wardrobe and get up­cy­cling. With a few ba­sics, you can trans­form unwanted clothes rather than throw­ing them away or spend­ing money on some­thing new. Ditch the ready-to-wear and get stitch­ing your own!
