Update: This giveaway has now ended. The next Year of Free Sewing Patterns giveaway will take place in October 2015. Stay tuned! 

Do you ever wonder just how long it would take to transition your closet and drawers to a 100% handmade wardrobe? Would you be able to weed out your paper thin t-shirts made overseas and replace them with the home-sewn variety in a matter of months?

Could you replace your ten pairs of stretched-out, see-through leggings for one or two pairs sewn to perfection? What if you set aside a full year, sewing one garment per month, to completely, and radically change the way you look at your clothing? We think you can do it.

Weeding Fast Fashion Out of Your Closet | Blog

Today, most of our bulging closets are made up of items produced in countries like Pakistan, Indonesia or Bangladesh. Fast fashion retailers are making fashion cheap and abundant in almost every city across our country. The industry that supplies us with so much impossibly affordable clothing is nearly killing our environment, and causing strife to millions of garment workers around the globe. You can read more about that here.

Maybe you’ve taken some small action with your sewing hobby. It’s possible you’ve been able to integrate a few handmade pieces here and there. But there's a good chance you haven't entirely converted your everyday clothes to garments made by your very own hands. When our closets are so full of such cheap, trendy clothing, it can be hard to start a wardrobe overhaul.
