MAKE DO AND MEND
Make, Do and Mend was a program introduced during World War II to reduce the use of fabric and free up space for war related production.
People were encouraged to mend and hand-repaired their clothing. This helped people to become very creative in the use of fabric and how to re purpose all clothes into something wearable.
