Greeny Crafter 4 - Recycled Fashion

Well, I still haven't decided what to refashion. Maybe I should just chill out and it will come to my mind, or may be I could just hop over to Erica's Recycled Fashion for some lovely inspiration!  Actually, I wasn't really sure whether putting "Recycled Fashion" in the title of this feature would be enough because i) she also blogs at Recycled Sewing about her crafts made out of recycled and unwanted materials; ii) she is one of the editors of the refashion collaborative blog Refashion Co-op; and iii) she just may be one of the wonderful ladies leading an op shopping tour for the Melbourne Op Shop Tours (Ugh, I wish I had known about these tours when I was last in Melbourne. I love vintage stores - sigh, next time!).  This is one talented mum!

Erica started writing Recycled Fashion, and soon discovered a community of clever, talented people creating their own clothes from existing garments. She then found Wardrobe Refashion, which really inspired her to start sewing.  She started sewing in September 2010 - actually, it's amazing that she has only been sewing for less than 2 years because she has churned out some great refashions as you will see in some of her favs below: 




Frumpy vintage.....

Tablecloth transformation to a dress...
perfect for the summer!
Erica is environmentally passionate having worked in the environmental/community sector for many years. Her belief is "believe that new style can be recreated from old.  Rather than landfill our beautiful planet with fabric, I prefer to buy second hand clothing, and refashion my own outfits.  Recycled outfits make fashion more sustainable, and fun." I totally agree with you, Erica!


Happy crafting everyone!
