Thanks for sharing another way to connect through slow fashion @ter@terrigardner_meadowtree. ・・・ #repost @terrigardner_meadowtree #slo#slo#slowfashionchallenge Really the last day! How has this month’s experience influenced me? I am an advanced style blogger with a leaning towards slow fashion. For a year I’ve sponsored a monthly linkup on my blog Meadowtreestyle.com. Until this month, my linkup has only been for styling with 2nd hand items. I was thinking seriously about expanding the linkup to more slow fashion ideas. When I found this challenge, it was like a sign and starting tomorrow my 1st Friday linkup is much more inclusive including ideas such as: fair trade items, swapped it with a friend, made for life, locally produced to name just a few. If anyone participating this month wants to link up in blog-land, please check out Meadowstyle.com June 1st and join the party. In my book, #slowisthewaytogo #slowfashionchallenge, #slowfashion, #ethicalfashion, #fairtrade, #worldfashion, #buylocal, #memade, #clothingswap

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the #slo#slo#slowfashionchallenge @fan@fancy_scientist. If any of you are still working your way through the prompts, keep them coming! It's never too late. Slow Fashion everyday is our motto!💚♻️🌿#Repost @fancy_scientist ・・・ My first NC blogger meet up at @HollandMain and on the last day of the #slowfashionchallenge. I stopped posting at the end (I ran out of stuff!), but I didn’t stop learning. My goal was to find brands that could hold up, paid people fair wages, and were friendlier to our planet. I found an amazing community of (mostly) women and I now find myself thinking more about my purchases – what they are made of and by whom. Tonight, at the blogger meetup I was so happy to find these flare jeans by @judybluejeans . First, it is impossible to find flares anymore! I know skinny jeans are in, but they’ve been in for like 10 years now, so can we get some variety? Second, they are made in the USA! Before I spent more than I usually do on jeans, but I felt good doing so knowing that people were getting paid fair wages (and they look lovely). Slow fashion is easier than I thought, but still a major challenge. My goal is to improve with time, spread the word, and pressure my favorite brands to get on board. . . #HollAndMainBoutique, #NCBloggerNetwork #slowfashion #ootd #outfitoftheday #jeans #Raleigh #shoplocal #fastfashion #fas#fashion #boutique #shopping #conservation #sustainability #blogger #style #fla#flares #flare #fashion #raleighblogger #raleighnc #raleighboutique #madeinamerica #madeinusa #ethicalfashion

Check out @sar@sarahlazarovic’s account to see the buyerarchy of needs in several different languages! … #Repost @timetosew ・・・ Last day of #slo#slowfashionlenge (and #MMM#MMMay - "what is your commitment to slow fashion?" You might have seen this buyerarchy of needs before by @sarahlazarovic, but I really love it for highlighting "use what you have" as the basic principle, and that "make" is only one behind buy. It is a popular picture this one, and has been translated into a dozen languages! . For me #slowfashion is blogging about sustainability and textiles, #sustainablesewing and wearing what I already have. If I want to make something I'll be doing #makeyourstash first before buying something secondhand to wear/refashion or buying new lengths of cloth. . One reason I really like #MMMay is that my feed is full of makes that aren't necessarily new. This year in particular its been great to see people pull out some neglected things in the closet and really start to consider more whether the things they are making will fit into their wardrobe. I hope you have had an excellent month and whatever pledges you made worked for you - look out for the round up I'm doing with some of my friends over on the #sewcialist blog in the next few days! @chloe_deadlycraft @wis_g @kimknitsmitts . . . . . #wearwhatyoumake #sewing #sewingmama #sewistswearitagain #sewistsofinstagram #handmadewardrobe #isew #diyfashion #memadeeveryday #sewcialistslovemmmay #lovedclotheslast #30wears #fashrev #handmadeclothing #slowstyle #slowmade #buynothingnew #buyerarchyofneeds #repurposedfashion #slowsewing #repurposedfabric #fashionrevolution

Great tips! No matter what kind of budget you have, looking for these types of clues on the quality of items can be helpful when making any type of purchasing decision. ・・・ Repost @lucie_dumpling ・・・ @slowfashionchallenge Day 25: Fact Fact: it’s more cost effective to repair a quality piece of clothing (or resole a pair of well made shoes) than to buy multiple items of cheaply made fast fashion. The key is in the details. 1. Tug on the fabric. If it doesn’t spring back well, the garment won’t hold its shape through multiple wears and washes. 2. Check the seams and the hems. Are they straight and even? What about loose threads? 3. Try out any zips, buttons, and fasteners. If they don’t work easily, they’ll only get worse with wear. A well made buttonhole is a sure sign of a quality garment. 🍉 🦖 🍁 #slowfashion #slowfashionchallenge #sustainablefashion #clothesthatlast #wellmade
