    Denim can do no wrong in my eyes. Yup, even done right, double denim sits okay with me. I adore the denim make up bag in the first picture. Aztec is another favourite so combining it with denim makes for a perfect pair! Perhaps a denim font could be pretty cool for a new print too!

    I really love denim. I like to upcycle old trousers or blouses into something new. Denim is of such high quality, it's a shame it's thrown away! Like to think it helps to make the world a little bit better :)

    I LOVE denim - it never goes out of fashion... With my first week's wages, I bought a pair of Levis - total cost was about a fiver - then went skating. Happy days...but then, it was1971.

    I love the way denim can be super casual or neatly stylish, and has a timeless quality. So great that once again it's trendy. I'll be making some bags in denim - the last one I made was for my great-niece.

    Denim is such a wearable fabric! Always in style and matches with just about anything. I in particular liked the cosmetics bag and the head band.

    We love Denim. I have made some SUPER makes over the past 30 years with denim. I will see what we can get out into the shop ASAP. My mum, Podge, has made a couple of FANTASTIC coats :) real one off / bespoke designs. WOW...... we are gearing up to make some soon with our new machines and are always teaching my daughter (the next generation) the importance of remakes and the versatility of this material. WOW again as I am now re-excited about DENIM.

    I love the double denim dress from Riyka, too bad the link doesn't seem to be working for me to see more. I guess Denim is timeless, but it can also be done wrong;-)

    • Alice Young said 4 years ago

      Hi there! It's lovely, isn't it? Just type riyka.etsy.com into your address bar, and it'll take you straight to the shop. I totally agree that denim can be done wrong- Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's ensemble in the early 2000s is a case in point!

    I love upcycling denim, usually with an element of my collaged textile alongside. Glad to see it's getting some recognition this year!

    Thank you so much for featuring us in this post, we love the Rose dress, and denim as well. wanted to thanks you personally Alice, but the link to your profile does not seem to work(neither to our shop) Great post xx

    • Alice Young said 4 years ago

      You're very welcome! The links are working fine for me, but I will definitely try and fix them for everyone else- thank you for highlighting the issue. Hope you have a great day xx
