Today is the last day that you can buy New Look patterns at 40% off. The offer is valid on all of the designs in the newly launched summer catalogue which features some great new outfit ideas.
Be part of the Slow Fashion movement and invest some time in making yourself something to wear this summer, the time and care you take in making your own garment will lead to an appreciation of the textiles that you use and the resources that goes into producing them for manufacture. You will be making something to fit your measurements so no more compromising on badly fitting garments either. By starting to create your own wardrobe you can contribute to reducing the waste and emissions caused by the Fast Fashion industry because after investing your time in sewing things to wear, you will make it to last and think twice before casting it aside. You will be doing your bit for the planet and your local town by spending money in an actual shop, not online! This promotes local employment whereas buying patterns online will not.
We also hold stock of all the current New Look patterns so you don’t have to wait or pay for postage either 🙂 We don’t even mind if you choose to upcycle an old garment or textiles with your new pattern instead of buying new fabric from us because we are passionate about sustainability at Livingstone Textiles and have been working to keep our carbon footprint as small as we possibly can for years. We are now stocking fabric made from waste fibres in the textile industry as well as recycled felt, and are actively demanding more choice from our suppliers. You will be able to read a lot more about our business ethic and green credentials very soon because we are compiling a whole new page dedicated to it on our website where you will be able to see all of the little and big things we are doing to help make a difference.
