Hi,

A friend and I plan to challenge ourselves to build our wardrobe by sewing for one whole year. We don't plan to buy any clothing for that year. Our start date is April 1, 2013. We will use the next few months to prepare by selecting "go to" patterns and organizing our fabric and pattern stash. We are hoping there will be others who want to participate as well.

If you're interested or know someone who's up for the challenge, check out Join the Challenge: Sew Your Own Wardrobe for a Year. This blog will chronicle the journey during the year. Those who want to participate will be invited to author posts to record the journey. We will also list you on the team of contributors and add a link to your blog.

I hope you'll consider it. My friend has been sewing for just under two years. I've been sewing for much longer. We all need encouragement. I look forward to hearing from you. You may also send me a message here or email me at wordchick61@gmail.com

I saw this or a variation a couple of weeks ago and am thinking of joining. I'll need to think about how I'd like to handle undergarments and activewear, though.

Hi Lynnelle,

So far, those of us involved have decided to continue to purchase undergarments. I hadn't considered active wear.... I hope you'll join us! vita
