Jemma's Passion Project: Passion For Recyclable Fashion

Passion For

Recyclable Fashion
My goal:
To take old clothes and turn them into new clothes by changing the design of the item. I want to make clothes that are unique and cool in their own way.
I chose this subject because I have always wanted to be a designer and thought that this would be a great opportunity to start.

For a first time sewer, this was a challenge because I needed to get some supplies, like:

  • A Sewing Machine 
  • Patterns
  • Pins and pincushions, etc… 
After I had these, I was ready to get started.

To get advise, I contacted 3 designers around Christchurchunfortunately only Sharon from NG Space got back to me. After school I went to go visit her and she gave me good tips. These helped me a lot through out the journey.   

I have learnt lots of new skills along the way that I didn't know before, such as:
  • keeping seam small and tidy
  • how to use a Pattern
  • and using a sewing machine 

When I had finished my project, I was stunned at the result and I am very glad that I chose this subject.
