Wearing the Shift

4 Jan

Quite some time ago, a friend alerted me to a Kickstarter project out of Pittsburgh called “Wear the Shift”, which focused on creating custom-made dresses to fit all bodies. It focused on alternatives to many aspects of mass-market clothing retail, from using (or reusing) vintage materials, to making clothes well so that they can last longer–fewer items, but better-fitting, more comfortable, and more well made. A kinder, more sustainable sort of fashion.
Now, Wear the Shift is releasing their custom-designed shift dress patterns so that home sewers can get in on the action, too.  Today you’ll find me guest-blogging over on the Wear the Shift site about my experiences working with my custom Shift dress pattern:

You can get a custom pattern drafted for yourself, starting tomorrow, over on Wear the Shift’s Etsy store. And today (and always) you can find cute shifts and skirts there as well (also custom made to fit your individual body in all its sizing peculiarities).
