During the past month, we’ve had a lot of discussions over how to sew a wardrobe on a budget. Whether through thrifting and refashioning or by making clothes with scraps, there are tons of ways to create on a dime. Another way to ensure budget-friendly sewing is by choosing the right types of projects to create. Sure, current fashion fads are fun to make, and you should splurge every now and then. However, it’s much more fiscally responsible to make a classic piece that transitions from one season to the next.
