Sew Wasted is a one gal made-to-order fashion business located in Manchester, UK.

My name is Elysha and I run this little handmade clothing biz called Sew Wasted. During lockdown I was a bit bored (who wasn’t?) and made myself a couple tartan dresses. I received tonnes of messages asking if I was going to sell them and well the rest is history! 

Before Sew Wasted, I was working in retail; feeling lost and it was the bane of my life. I’ve always been creative and knew I wanted to work for myself. Whenever I did do something creative for myself, I would always hear “Elysha, you’re so wasted! You should do that as a job” but it just didn’t feel right, yano? Constantly hearing those words was hard, it was like I had to figure my life out straight away when in reality I had no idea who I was or what I wanted to do. That was until I stumbled upon this little biz and it just clicked!
