Lets make do and mend (with really pretty vintage fabrics)

This shop was born out of a love for sewing, beautiful fabrics and a desire to 'make sustainably'.

I make accessories and clothes made almost exclusively from materials sourced from vintage fairs, flea markets, my mums linen closet (thanks mum), and fabric donations from friends*. This means that I don't bulk buy fabric and that most of my products are one of a kind, ready made and all ready to be shipped out to you.

I work from my little sewing studio in my home in Copenhagen. I'm currently also doing an MA in Social Entrepreneurship, and I find that sewing is a nice and creative break from having my head in the books!

I am really up for being creative, and helping my customers create custom products just for them. So if you have some fabric lying around at home (perhaps some old curtains or a garish table cloth inherited from your granny?) that you would like to turn into a pillow or two - I offer a custom made service to do that for you.

By using vintage materials, and also encouraging you to provide your own, I am attempting to counter the 'fast fashion' that the high street tempts us with on a daily basis. I like slow and sustainable fashion.

Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to hearing from you.

*Yes, all materials are carefully washed and quality checked!

Returns and exchanges
I am very keen to make sure that all of my customers are happy. So...

If an item is defective in any way, please contact me as soon as you can. Depending on the circumstances, I may offer a refund or an exchange for a similar item of the same value. The item must be returned in the same condition as it was received within 30 days of the purchase. Shipping costs for returned items will not be covered by We the Sewing.

I am unfortunately unable to issue a refund or exchange if the item is damaged or lost in transit.
I accept card payments via Etsy and Paypal.
I aim to ship all orders in 1-3 days. The delivery time varies from 1-2 working days in Denmark, to 2-4 working days to the rest of Europe (EU).

If you would like to get an estimation of what the delivery time is to any country outside the EU, please get in touch and I will check with the Danish postal service. Please note that all delivery times are estimations. If you are concerned about the item arriving safely, get in touch and we can discuss tracked services.

All deliveries are posted via the Danish postal service, and are sent as A Prioritaire Mail.

Gift wrapping:
I wrap all of my products before shipping them out to you, so they are gift ready straight out of the envelope! If you're making an order that is to be sent as a present to the receivers address, please let me know if you want me to write a personal message on the card.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am more than happy to receive enquiries about custom orders. If you have an idea for a design, or some lovely fabric you would like to make something with, please do get in touch and we'll see what we can do!
