I have been a designer with my shop Baby Hobbes Design for over three years now, and this past year, I found my self passionate about the Slow-Fashion movement. I can’t control the consumption of clothes that manufactures produce; and my heart sinks whenever I see the abundance of brand new items on the clearance rack. Items that never had a chance to tell their story and will likely end up in a landfill one day. I’ve been challenging my self to avoid the middle man and pluck these items from the rack before they are discarded and give them a second chance to tell their story. I call it “Second Chance Fashion: fixing the flaws of fast fashion and recycling while decreasing our carbon footprint.”
After finding several of these men’s shirt, most with an uneven hem; I knew that they were destined for another chance. I always work using a pattern piece cut on the fold; but this time I used Candice’s tip about the lined parchment paper to get the perfect placement for my bodice. Awesome Tip!
My kid adores her new dress, and the L size shirt was perfect to get a size 5/6 Dress.
