So what is #SewMyStyle I hear you ask?
It’s all about raising awareness about the slow fashion movement and about encouraging young women to take up sewing. We want to show you that sewing your own wardrobe isn’t an unachievable dream. So of course anyone can give it a go!
How Does it Work?
We’ll be sewing 12 garments in 12 months. We’ll post photos of our makes on Instagram on the last Sunday of every month. In the end, we’ll have a nice little capsule wardrobe of handmade clothes. Yay!!
