Home Sewn at the New Dowse



I recently attended the launch of "Home Sewn" at the New Dowse.

From the website "Curated by New Zealand fashion designer Doris de Pont, Home Sewn is a retrospective of the home sewing revolution in New Zealand. At a time when off-the-peg fashion was scarce and expensive, home sewing provided many generations of women with a stylish wardrobe that reflected the current couture of the fashion capitals.Home Sewn is a touring exhibition from the New Zealand Fashion Museum. "


I'd love to be able to create such polished garments!
 
 
 

This zipper is great I love how they've swapped it out for a better pull.
