I took up sewing again so that I could make outfits for my new found hobby of Rockabilly dancing. Many Rockabilly fans are full on into the fashion – you go to a gig and are surrounded by all these women wearing gorgeous 1950’s fashions. Whilst there are many websites selling these outfits, the prices are $$, and the sizing, as always, does not often suit me. So I decided to start sewing.
And having just bought a couple of Rockabilly dresses that I found on special, I am even more glad that I can sew. The quality of these garments, for the price you pay, is very poor. If i’d bought them from my local discount dept store (Big W or Target) the quality would be what I’d expect – but it’s certainly not what I would expect for dresses marked down from $145. (AUD) Luckily I only paid $65 each – but even then the quality for that price isn’t great.
Ah, well – yet another good reason to make my own!
