I AM NOT GOING TO BUY ANY NEW CLOTHES FOR A YEAR

I AM NOT GOING TO BUY MYSELF ANY NEW CLOTHES FOR A YEAR.

1. I can make clothes.
2. I can buy second hand clothes.
3. I can buy underwear.
4. Not sure about swimmers yet!

I actually started this on June the first so six weeks in and so far so good!

This has been brewing in my head for a while. Now that I can make clothes I understand how much work goes into making them and how little thought goes into acquiring them. I read Overdressed. I think I just want to be more mindful about buying for the sake of buying. Or for something to do (all those Saturdays shopping in my 20's). Frankly, I'd rather spend the time sewing. Not even for the end product but the joy it brings me to MAKE something.

I'll see how it goes. Even if I don't make it to 12 months at least it means that if I buy something it will be appreciated and a considered purchase.

Thanks for listening,

Cheshire xxx.

  1. Hi I make most of my business work clothes except for jackets. Once you have tried and true patterns it's faster then shopping. I also have found a great underwater pattern that I love, so don't discount that as well. Living in Canada I love having lots of warm underware.
