because you look on people sites who follow you, who follow them, who follow them...or is that just me? then you see lovely things that people make...and i think ooo i want to try that...Then you see clothes, lovely super clothes. i found out about the website modcloth...it is in American but they do send to the UK. but the post cost really doesn't help and what if they dont fit? But on my christmas list... My daughter wants the dress above and the top below. i approve!
But lets not forget the wonderful Vivien of Holloway. the clothes all made in the UK to vintage patterns.
