I was in France last week and while I was there we visited a really interesting little shop. It collects left over items from factories and sells them on at ridiculously low prices. I want to find something like this in London! I bought all of this for less than €5...

I spent the day drafting a pattern and used my finds to make a pair of knickers. I have never made anything like this before and although there was lots of swearing and unpicking I enjoyed it a lot. The pair I made were a little small so I will be reworking the pattern and definitely trying it out again.

This (unworn!) pair can be bought in my etsy shop

Just a quick question - where is the shop in France? My sister is living over there at the moment and a visit might be in order!
