Sarah who runs the blog ‘Goodbye Valentino’ is running the RTW Fast for another year and I’ve joined up again. I believe that this year there are double the amount of pledgers than 2014. Underwear and socks are allowed but the aim is to avoid buying any ready to wear clothing for the year.
I enjoyed taking part last year and found it surprisingly easy – there was the pair of waterproof over trousers but I would say a necessary purchase. I found that being on the fast made me focus more on what I needed to make and by the end of the year I felt I had created a reasonably versatile wardrobe.
Anyone else taking part?
What do you think you’ll miss buying most?
I really need jeans so I’m hoping the Crafty Jeanius course is going to be a success.
I’m also going to take part in Zoe’s 2015 Sewing / Design and Inspiration Challenge over at her blog ‘Short Stories of Shapely Seams’. Zoe has set up a monthly challenge, which sounds manageable. For January it’s create a mood board and then make a garment inspired by your board. I’ve been working on the mood board and know what I’d like to make, I just need to buy the fabric and I only have two weeks left of January…….
