The Seamless Pledge... Except for Underwear

Taken from:


  1. No buying new clothes for the duration of your pledge. By new, I mean any new mass-manufactured clothes.
  2. You can buy second-hand manufactured clothes – so be prepared to get to know your local charity shops awfully well.
  3. Vintage clothing is a-ok!
  4. Anything you’ve made by hand is definitely allowed. Get your sewing machines and your knitting needles out, because handmade is definitely in!
  5. Get involved! Join in on the Flickr group and like our Facebook page. I’ll be looking to feature pledgers on the blog in the future. I’d love to see your second-hand finds, refashions and hand-made creations!
I, Brittany Cole, take the Seamless pledge until 3/31/2012. I will abstain from buying any new clothes until the end of my pledge. I will find ways to be fashionable without breaking the bank and without contributing to the cycle of fast fashion consuming the high street. I will trawl through charity shops, I will attend clothes swaps, I will look for second-hand items on eBay and I will craft my own clothes with my own two hands. 

I am going to take this pledge for my clothes. However, I am still going to buy new clothes for Billy and Brian. I will try this for 3 months and see how it goes. I don't think it will be to difficult for me because I already get most of my clothes at thrift stores anyway. I also love to make my own clothes. So here goes!
