- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi

I knew it
I have been thinking about this a while now. Just when women start to breathe and lead lives of their own defining, someone somewhere decides they need to be slowed down.
Often these someones are fashion designers, who of course are just expressing larger themes.
In particular the shoes so many women try to wear these days seem to prove this. I mean a girl just can't keep up, all day on her feet, staggering behind in 5 inch heels.
When I see shoes like this, I think really? These are just designed to trip you up. I mean I love pretty shoes but do these look like they belong on the feet of someone who has worked to be comfortable in her own skin, on can stand on her own two feet?
Which may be the point.
What do you think of this?
