    Patterns for the dress are now on sale! AND I’VE ORDERED ONE. HOORAY!!!!!! It was expensive including the post to UK, but I don’t mind – I’ve followed UP with interest for over a year & I think what she did was amazing & very inspiring. Hope its gets here PDQ

    Perhaps we could try the same; sew a dress and wear it just for one month – instead of jeans or so (sometimes I think that it’s quite boring that you see mostly jeans everywhere)…

    i bought one of the 365 dresses! i haven’t received it yet, it’s still being manufactured. i thought buying one was a great way to support a good cause and to get a small piece of wearable fashion history. i’m really excited to see it in person. while i’m interested in sustainable clothing manufacturing, since i do sew my own clothes, i’m really interested in material and construction, since i do sew my own clothes. i can’t wait to get it. i hope it fits!

    blimey that’s sobering! with a little imagination and style (and lots of accesories).. you really dont need that many clothes! would love that dress pattern too. love the versatility.. the restriction in a way lets you unleash more creativity

    Two conclusions: 1. She’s got STYLE 2. I need a dress like hers, she actually managed to dress with more variation around it than I do when I use any clothes I like, such a versatile piece of clothing!
