Tuesday 7 February 2023: Ros is a SewOver50 follower who lives in Edinburgh and has taken up sewing again in the last 2 years.

The fab shirt above was made from tea towels that were in Ros’s mother’s belongings. This is Jack, her son, proudly wearing this shirt, full of memories from these tea towels purchased on various family holidays.

Ros talks about how she is providing her sewing skills to the community. One of her favourite sewing projects is finding tops from Op shops and attaching a skirt to these tops. Stitching a skirt to a thrifted top is easy and takes a couple hours to do.

The outfit Ros and her son Jack designed last year for Shelter Fashion for Social Change Award @sheltershopsscotland was on display in the actual V&A Dundee in November 2022.

Ros mentioned how proud was to have collaborated with @jack_stamp_art who designed the outfit and @finlaygjewellery who designed and made the fabulous necklace. The whole outfit was made from old sheets and tea towels. Their outfit became part of Scotland’s Fashion Festival 2022 @ScotReDesign

You can understand why Ros was proud to be shortlisted for Shelter Fashion for Social Change Award @sheltershopsscotland
