To support next weeks theme I have asked everyone to join the go slow clothes movement. This is simply aimed at celebrating the demise of the fast fashion curse. Please feel free to read more charlottesewfarsewgood.blogspot.com or myfamilymyway.blogspot.com
there will also be a flickr group to share and a gadget/picture which is below that you are free to post onto your own blog to show your support ( a little mention of me would be nice!)
hey I would like to also thank Ladykatza, it is very true that we all would like to think of others more but often we side eline it just because we want more.
I also feel that we are making a step in the right direction, all of us here are thrifters and recyclers and that is a very positive first step.
As to my next step, I am stop stop buying cheap patterns off ebay or etsy! I plan to make a more organised waldrobe for autumn/ winter. I know this will mean making alot as I only started this year so only have lighter clothing, but if any of you have seen my outfits you will see I'm a fan of layering so those summer Ts will still have a bit of life through the winter. But hey not just yet the sun has only just come out here in the uk! x x x
Out of curiosity, how many would be interested in a two-month long challenge for "Wardrobe Essentials" making a mix-match wardrobe out of your existing stash or refashion/thrifted materials? Things that can be used most of the year, and of course, match your lifestyle? And using patterns on-hand (or free patterns)?
I certainly would be curious to see what a challenge like this consists of. Are you thinking it is based on all existing clothing, patterns and fabric stash? Now this really is a very good idea!
I do like the idea Sarai at Colette started, per season create a color palette and a mood or theme board to keep focused.
Awesome! I'l compose a new thread when I'm not at work and can put more thought into it. <3
Also, I think cute dresses ARE essentials. To quote the sew-a-holic, sometimes having a tried and true dress pattern to make several of the same thing from allows you to look "put together" without much work.
