One of the lovely things about fashion is that everyone in a while the trends align to favor those of us who know our way around a sewing machine. To whit: Trainspotter's mixed-up plaid shirts, pure inspiration for the savvy trashionista.
NWL began as a forum for my ruminations on everyday ethical concerns, then shifted to ethical consumption and voluntary simplicity for a while. I no longer post updates, but you are welcome to enjoy the archives!
My views are my own, shaped by my age (b. 1949), race (rather obvious), gender (ditto), education (PhD in textiles), political views (liberrrral) and religious affiliation (Unitarian Universalist). Also being from Nebraska and living Inside the Beltway.
