I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches.

What do women over 50 want to wear?

Interesting article in the Huffington Post this morning, interesting for the comments at the bottom from women on what frustrates them about dressing. I noted the commentors who said they sew to get what they want, and the response "was it hard to learn?"

Love it when the news is on topic for me. I have read all I need to about male indiscretions this month.

Thanks for sharing this very interesting article with us. I have to agree with the comments about the fit of RTW. Isn't this the main reason many of us sew. You'd think the manufacturers would get the message. Alas, no, they mostly cater for the younder generations many of whom wouldn't know what a good fit was.
