I loved the Wardrobe Refashion project that now unfortunately has come to an end.
We are a group of crafters that started a new one on a blog called Garderobsreformen and that means Wardrobe Reform in Swedish. Under the sewing machine in the logo above it says ”Zero Consumption of clothing” which is the goal :)
The idea is to stop buying clothes and stuff you wear, for as long as you can manage. And only make new clothes from old ones or from you stash, and sharing your result & process on the blog. See the fun challenge and join in! If you want to join us just e-mail your e-mail address and the url to your web site/blog (if you have one) to email@example.com and start blogging!
But I’m going to buy nylons! haha, they are really really difficult to make! :D
I have a large stash of fabric, yarn and a lot of old clothes. It’s garments I have inherited, found at fleemarkets over the years and new pieces I never wear because they are horrendous. Now I challenge myself to make stylish nice things that I can use at my work place and at partys out of all this.
From my stash

That sounds so awesome, I’m looking forward to seeing what people come up with! My roommate and I tried doing it as a New Year’s resolution a couple years ago and made it 8 months before we bought something new…it’s definitely a challenge, good luck!

Oh I’m really impressed! 8 months! It’s a very long time.
