But I will talk about my best Idea, "Reclaim Your Wardrobe" is an idea I came up with that would allow people to take back some of the control they have allowed big business take, regain skill that was once present in every house hold, and finally, allow some of your creative self reach out and grab the clothes off your back, to speak words each day and to make it known.
What is it?
Inspired by my newly honed skill of knitting, and Kirsten Dirksen of Fair Companies (more specifically a couple of her videos that I have link to below) Reclaim my Wardrobe is an project born of the idea of community, natural fibers, natural dyes and dying crafts.
I will, and would encourage you, to create all pieces of clothing within your wardrobe and to cycle out a piece everytime a new one is created, until all that is left is made by your hands, sweetly, and closely.
So far I have successfully completed one garment , although I have yet to discard of another piece. I think that is going to be the hard part. Below are some photos of the completed dress.
I invite you to take the challenge and to RECLAIM YOUR WARDROBE!
