Recycled Fashion in 2013

Saturday, December 28, 2013

As we reach the end of another year, and take time to reflect on the year that was, I've had a little fun going over the blog, to see what's been rocking your socks in the world of Recycled Fashion.

I've published a variety of posts over the year, all of which encompass the many branches within the recycled fashion topic; preloved, second hand, op shopping, vintage, upcycled fashion, revisited trends, inspiration and more. Interestingly, all of the top blog posts viewed on Recycled Fashion in 2013 were all of my own refashions:

The top five viewed blog posts on Recycled Fashion in 2013 were:

#1 Expanding the Waistline of Jeans or Trousers

#2 Red Bow Shirt Refashion

#3 T-shirt Grocery Bag

#4 Vintage Dress Puffy Sleeves Be Gone

#5 $5 Jersey Dress Refashion

Popular blog posts that were not related to my own refashions:

A write up on Colour Box Studio, pop up creative space in Footscray.
An informative guestpost written by AskSarah - A Guide to Fixing and Washing Second Hand Clothing
A personal perspective of Raising Children in a Second Hand World
Ideas for DIY Halloween Costumes
And lastly, the introduction of my family's new little addition

A few proud personal moments for the year include an article featured in The Ecologist in March 2013 entitled Hand-me-downs  In November, Recycled Fashion made it to the list of 7 Best Blogs for Refashioning Your Clothes, and also won Ettitude's 2013 Online Eco Hero Award.

2013 has been a great year for Recycled Fashion.  Thank you to everyone that reads what I have to say!

I would love to be able to refashion as wonderfully as you! I have a sewing machine now, so maybe I should practice...
I came to your blog to let you know I've linked to one of your previous posts on my blog today. I thought you might like to see it. x
