It’s Fashion Revolution Week! This year I’m posting three days of DIYs inspired by Fashion Revolution’s #haulternative prompt…
#Haulternative: the sustainable version of a shopping haul, spotlighting dearly loved, vintage, secondhand, swapped, rented, and upcycled goods in an effort to show that fashion is about more than a shopping binge. Learn more here.
I’ve participated in the Love Story and #whomademyclothes social media prompts in past years so I knew I wanted to focus on DIY this time around. It’s something I’ve loved since I was a kid but don’t often make time for in my busy adult life. I emailed Justina at Smockwalker Vintage to see if she would be on board for sending me a few good-but-not-perfect vintage things to upcycle. Not only was she in, she even did her own DIY work on two things before sending them!
I’ll be featuring three different clothing DIY projects this week, starting with:
Justina’s Adorable “L” Embroidery
- A thrifted, vintage, or pre-owned collared shirt
- Embroidery thread in the color of your choice
- A needle
