Zooey Deschanel survived on frugal wear as teen

Los Angeles, March 22: Known for her quirky style, actress Zooey Deschanel says during her teens she used to have a limited wardrobe as her parents wouldn’t allow her splurge on clothes.

“My parents wouldn’t let my buy clothes willy-nilly. We’d get new clothes maybe twice a year, just practical things, so I started making them myself,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

“I would sort of fit things on myself and then sew them together. I remember taking fabric my mom had used to make a Christmas stocking, but I made a red dress out of it, with white eyelet trim, for a friend’s birthday party,” she added.
