As someone who loves clothes and fashion, you might be surprised to learn that I actually own very few clothes. Now, that is. In my younger years, I had multiple closets full of clothes and shoes in excess of 100 pairs. Not anymore. Once I became a mom, space, clutter and time became paramount. I also learned more about efficiency. Having fewer clothes means less upkeep and actually more options. The things that I do own, I wear and love.
To keep from getting bored with my clothes, I do tend to refresh and upcycle quite a bit. I might combine elements from two or more items or just cut up a skirt and refashion it into a dress. Often times these remakes are some of the clothes that I get the most compliments on.
To share some ideas with you on how you too can begin to slow down and reconsider your own closet updates, next month I am hosting a Sashiko mending workshop and a Clothing Swap. In addition to these workshops, I will be posting new content on this blog (now that I am promising it- it will happen. Accountability, my friends!)
What are some techniques that you would like to learn?
