I tried it on, and it fit like it was made for me

One of the best ways to shop sustainably is not to shop, but to keep loved garments for years, which is what Ellie has done with her 13-year-old pinafore dress from Syd & Mallory. “I remember the first time I saw it and how much I liked it. I tried it on, and it fit like it was made for me! I was a big fan of vintage clothing as a teenager and loved Syd and Mallory’s vintage inspired pieces.” A bit of a crafter herself, Ellie has remained fond of handmade clothing. “To see other people’s skills and talents at play just makes the clothing more interesting and personal.”
