Upcycling Beginners

Where To Start?

"Where to start?" is often a conundrum when you're new to upcycling clothing (a.k.a. refashioning). And this, no matter the sewing, dressmaking - or lack of! - experience.

You could be a sewist all your life, a quilter, maker of your own clothes, sewing returnee, even a sewing beginner. "Where to start?" is where everybody begins.

Find out Mariana's systematical approach for easy start, with what you already have, so that you focus on the right stuff right from the get-go and avoid bulking up with half-finished projects you realised you won't wear 'as is'.
