Everyone seems to be getting into crafting these days, so it’s a good time for 70s stitch-at-home clothing label Clothkits to return.

Originally started by British textile designer Anne Kennedy in 1969, it offered everything you would need to make your own fashions – right down to the buttons and thread. The idea being to create your own individual fashion pieces, but at a fraction of the price. It continued until 1991, but has now been re-launched by Kay Mawer, offering cool designs with more than a slight retro twist.

The principle is the same, with children’s wear and women’s wear available to order as a complete package, with a child’s dress starting at £15 and a women’s skirt from £35. Or you could start simple and go for the Clothkitty doll (pictured), based on an original vintage pattern, with a choice of black or ginger hair and with her own clothing range available to order and make.

You can pick up the doll kit now for £16. The future looks bright too – with matching doll/childrens fashions on their way (to create your own ‘mini me’), plus a range of 70s-style pinafores and dungarees from Retro To Go favourites People Will Always Need Plates.
