Welcome back to the second edition of The Cloth Hugger. A hug of eco-dressmaking tidbits.
.. Perth artisan Elizabeth Leslie hand weaves and naturally dyes all of the exquisite contemporary clothing in her shop.
.. I am excited by this zero waste dress and even more so by the fact that we might convince Marilla to do some zero waste patterns!
.. have you ever made a garment out of old ties? I know I have! I think Mary Katronski somehow managed to make it cool again.
.. I love that an exhibition led to a whole micro-business selling felt mending kits.
.. I love watching Emily Steele’s journey into mud dyeing and weaving.
.. Great Ocean Road Mill are now selling all Australian Yarn grown and spun in Victoria.
.. Learn to mud dye with Judy Dominic in Meeniyan (I believe she’d doing other workshops around Australia too)
.. this refashioned book is full of refashion inspiration from 46 international designers.
.. Fashion Revolution week starts April 24, snap a pic and show your makes. Is it nerdy that the release of all the related reports and data excites me?
