Brother Fashion Tip of the Week

I’m pleased to share my Fashion Tip of the Week from the Brother Loves Fashion Campaign! As one could expect, it’s a thrifty tip that focuses on re-purposing!

“If you’ve ever ruined a favorite garment with a permanent stain, try this handy trick! Create a paper pattern by disassembling the garment with a seam ripper and tracing the different pieces onto paper. That way you can recreate new replicas of that favorite garment over and over again! And the best part is – you’ll know the sizing is just right!”
