Needlework & Crafts: Do-It-Yourself Fashion From 1971 and 1972

Fashion trends come and go every year, however, nowadays consumers are challenging the fashion industry to take on more ethically sustainable practices, as fast fashion has already been a major issue in the world.

Moreover, when it comes to fashion these days, lots of people do want one-of-a-kind unique pieces that they can show off.
