For March, the Ethical Fashion Bloggers were challenged to make or upcycle a piece of clothing or accessory without spending much money. There is some fantastic inspiration here on ways to refresh your wardrobe with really easy ways to refashion an old piece of clothing to slightly more complex sewing projects for a whole new piece of clothing from something old, all without spending much money at all!
Terri at Rags Against the Machine has upcycled this beautiful printed shirt by replacing its buttons and added cute hearts to this skirt to cover burn holes.
Pao from Project Minima has been making good with scraps! This reversible vest has been made with real attention to detail right down to the handmade bias tape edging.
Franca of Oranges and Apples has made this fantastic dress using a thrifty sheet that she got from the Salvation Army.
At Thrifted Shift a cosy cardigan refashioned with some new buttons (and a very sweet dog!)
Vix at Vintage Vixen has made some Hippi tastic jeans by customising a pair she got at a car boot sale.
I recycled some old t shirts into a headband. Further details of this project on my blog Ethical Fashion Blog
If you fancy having a go at creating your own DIY clothes by upcycling something old, why not join us at Ethical Fashion Bloggers and take part in our monthly DIY round ups.
With warmest wishes
