October is my favourite month of the year, although the weather is still a bit too warm for my liking here! It seems like the perfect time for a new project, and Karen of Fringe Association has created a great one : Slow Fashion October.
Now I am a couple of weeks late to the party so I am going to combine the some weeks together.
I have been following Collete patterns wardrobe architect and it has really helped me to be more purposeful in my buying/making. It has helped me work out what shapes I like and the holes I have in my wardrobe. I had to get rid of a lot of clothes when I moved countries and although it forced me to purge I am left with a group of items that are not massively cohesive, so this month I want to make a few items that fill holes AND that I will love. I want to find a few patterns that fit me well and use them to make a small uniform that goes with the things I already own.
Also I want to learn more about locally produced yarn and buy some to knit a jumper this winter.
So what about you guys, are you joining in?
