Seamstress Jenniffer Taylor on starting a sewing revolution
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!
