From the blog: Goodbye Valentino the  RTF (ready to wear fasters) have been presented:

Ready to Wear Fasters for 2015 

We are a diverse group of sewers who have pledged not to buy any clothing this year. The rules are simple: No purchases of ALL clothing including outerwear, dresses, tops, pants, shorts, sweaters, coats, fitness apparel, jeans and bathing suits. Shoes, socks and under garments are permitted.

2015 Goodbye Valentino RTW Fast

From Sarah’s Blog post:

“Why sew rather than buy clothes for one year?

I started my first Ready to Wear Fast in 2011 to save money, but the RTW Fast led me on an interesting journey of self discovery and enlightenment. No doubt I improved my sewing skills, but the fast led me to experiment with new styles and colors, develop a sense of discipline and a sense of freedom. I emerged as a more thoughtful consumer and yes, I saved a lot of money too

My second RTW Fast was more of a challenge due to time constraints and pre-determined garments, but I successfully completed the year.

I congratulate this diverse group of women who share a common goal, and know their journeys will be unique.  A special congratulations to the women returning for a third fast who are noted on the 2015 RTW Fasters’ page!

You are invited to follow their sewing experiences HERE and cheer them on through the year!”

I had a lot of fun participating, sharing, and posting along with all of these creative sewers on our Facebook group page in 2014 and I look forward to another great year together in 2015.

  1. I can use the kick in the pants to start sewing my new wardrobe. I’ve lost 25 pounds, 25 to go and will sew, not buy, clothes this year. Great idea! This is perfect for me, I will be cheering you on!!

      Thank you, Rhonda! I’m glad you will be sewing your own clothes this year! You might want to check out the Monthly Stitch for even more inspiration and camaraderie. They are a great bunch of sewers.
