"Manage with and repair the possessions one already has rather than buying replacements"
We have become a rapidly wasteful society, but during WW11 - Make Do and Mend was introduce to help provide housewives with useful ideas on how to reuse old clothing, create pretty ‘decorative patches’ to cover holes in warn garments; unpick old jumpers to re-knit chic alternatives; turn men’s clothes into women’s; as well as darn, alter and simply reuse rather than waste.
Repair - ReUse - Recycle.
At That Perfect Costume we will happily help alter or adapt an existing costume or create a completely new outfit dependant on your requirements and budget.
