Friday 4 September 2020: On the Sewing Save Series, Margot is back talking us about her coat save which is now owned and proudly worn by her niece.

Sewing Save Series – Margot’s coat save

The coat is over 70 years old. The buttons were purchased from Harrods when there was a haberdashery department when she was visiting the UK in the 70s and the new lining was purchased online this year.

She’s also given us her technique to refresh the coat fabric without ruining it.

Series 2, episode 10: When you get the opportunity to meet people in the same family that love repurposing fabric and couture sewing, they’re worth talking to.

Margo and Clare Firth and their love of repurposing fabric and clothes

Margo and Clare attend couture workshops by Susan Khalje when Susan runs her workshops in Australia. The pink trimmed jacket is Clare’s audible jacket we discuss in this podcast.

Repurposing a silk scarf is what Margo did for her very first couture jacket.
