My 13 year old asked me to help her sort her clothes drawer out between Christmas and New Year because everything was too short in the arms and legs. She was excited and said, "Let's look in the drawers under my bed for the next clothes I am going to grow into" Imagine her disappointment when the procedure she was so used to over her whole childhood turned up absolutely nothing! For 13 years we have had a steady stream of second hand clothes from friends and family but it turns out that this wanes as you head into your teens. The only thing she had left was a Joules denim skirt and some long sleeved T-shirts.
What was a girl to do?
Next up we found some slinky grey viscose from Michelle's Lockdown bag and made another Linden top with other bits and bobs: some cream stretch Liverpool jersey and lovely knitted ribbing.
