The Pledge

I, Elena Cresci, take the Seamless pledge until I finish my degree at Cardiff University. 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.

Get involved!

Because pledges are far more fun with more people, I want to get you involved!

button

It’s simple to join up. Comment with your name, your blog (if you have one) and how long you’re signing up for. Once you’ve done that, add the button to your blog using this code:

[a href=”http://seamlessblog.wordpress.com/the-pledge/&#8221; target=”_blank”>[img src="http://seamlessblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/button.png" alt="The Seamless Pledge" /]</a] (replace the [ ] with < >)

Replace brackets with < and stick it in a textbox widget on your blog and you

and/or post the following to your social network of choice:

I (insert your name here) am taking the #seamlesspledge until (length of time here). http://bit.ly/tktV04

If you like, you can write a longer pledge like I have!

The rules

  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 kntting 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!

EDIT: Definitely didn’t expect so many pledgers! Hello to all of you! Just to let you know, I’m trying to map the Seamless pledge so we can see where everyone is at, so if you send me your location (eg Cardiff is mine) and I’ll put a placemarker on the map with a link to your blog.

      I’d like to join your seamless pledge… the only amendment I’ll likely make is bras. I’m not a skilled enough seamstress to promise I won’t buy this specific RTW item should all my current ones fail in some way. :D
      Otherwise, I’m happy to push my 2012 craft-life into high-gear!

      I had this very conversation with some people yesterday! I think I’m going to have to make underwear an exception, purely because I definitely can’t sew bras and second hand underwear is not a great thought!! I’ll leave it up to you guys to decide what you want to do with regards to underwear! If you do fancy sewing your own, there are a few tutorials online which will tell you how to do that :)

      Hope that answers your question! I’ll post an FAQ at some point as well haha.

    Hi Elena! I just read about you blog over at So Zo What do you know? and I felt I had to comment. Over at my own blog The Little Red Squirrel I have been doing exactly what your pledge is all about for almost a year now (I can’t believe how fast that’s gone!) and I can honestly say I have never been happier. I make my own clothes, thrift, buy vintage, and I must say not only an I more creatively stimulated and satisfied than I have been in a long time but I don’t think my wardrobe has ever been more full of outfits that I actually want to wear and love to wear. Ever had the sense that your wardrobe is full to bursting but you have nothing to wear? I used to, but after this year, not so much! I just wanted to say how brilliant I think it is that you are taking this pledge and are encouraging others to do it too, I’m sure you’re going to love it even though it’s a challenge. Best wishes and good luck! Katie :)

    Hi Elena! I too found you from Zoe’s blog and think that this is great! I’m still new in the self sewing department (but I do have a size-able fabric stash to work through) and I do love thrifting (a bit too much) so this will be an awesome challenge to join! I just realized what I used to like about “fast fashion” as you call it is not necessarily the clothes themselves, but the lure of the beautifully decorated, nice smelling boutiques – and leaving with shopping bags. I’m sure somebody studied the psychology of consumers and apply them when designing the malls to lure us in!
    Good luck everyone! :) Far

      Hello! Lovely to have you onboard, don’t think you can ever love thrifting too much ;) totally agree on the full bag psychology of it all. Nothing better than rifling through your goodies at the end of a shopping day!

      As for the badge – go to edit your post and delete the html code for the tag. Once you’ve done that, change your posting mode from ‘compose’ to ‘edit HTML’ (there should be a little tab on the right hand side of the square you type in). Then paste the code and update the post. This should sort it!

      If not, save the image onto your desktop and upload it to blogger as an image and make the image a hyperlink to http://seamlessblog.wordpress.com/the-pledge :)

      Hope that helps, let me know if you have anymore trouble!

    I’m in! My concern was the undergarments, and now that the rule was amended, I am 100% confident that I can join the pledge! Cheap, mass-manufacturing of questionable clothing has been a concern of mine recently. In addition to the poor working conditions in the factories, quality garment making has become an undervalued and unrecognized skill/profession. I hope this mindset towards quality and appreciation changes soon. Quality over quantity.

  22. Juliet

    I’m in! My mindset has been heading down this path for a while so it’s nice for me to know that there are others out there who have already done this (and that it is achieveable). I’ll do iot for three months to start out with – so to the end of March 2012.

    I have a few exceptions: I’m off on a big holiday for 5 weeks during this time, so I will be buying things! At all times I will go for hand- or at least locally-designed and made, and will avoid mass produced stuff. I will buy fabric as a souvenir and will buy gifts from stall holders where I have spoken with the people who made the item themselves.

    I’m also going to buy bras and socks, but will try to make my own panties.

      Hi! Well, it’s completely up to you really – if you want to sign up but it’s too much to get the rest of the family commit then that’s fine. The pledge isn’t super strict – for example, I do buy new underwear, tights and shoes at the moment. The featured pledger this week is actually a Mum and her kids aren’t part of her pledge anymore – sometimes it’s just not feasible for you to be making clothes for your whole family as well as yourself! If it helps, I still buy second hand clothes (albeit not very often) so there’s always that option too. The best thing to do is make the pledge your own :)

        that makes sense, I think I’m gonna “allow” myself to skip the other family and only sew for myself with the bargaining that I also sew underwear, maybe not a bra though, they never turn out good. :/ But I recently like the Betty High Waist pantie pattern from Oh lulu… Panties are the easiest! :)

        Did I mention I’m in? :) September 1st – March 1st. I’ll be buying socks and MAYBE a bra, but other underwear I’ll be making, I’ll try to make a bra as well but we’ll see about that, I can’t seem to find the right size. :/

    I do all that you have as the rules for my self normally already, however I am also signing up my family with out them knowing, I’ll sew all my son’s winter pj and tracksuit paints (I’m sick of having to add elastic and take in all his pants at the waist) and most of the boys boxers, from strong stain.
    I am going to be blogging about it all at http://vintagelittlesparrow.blogspot.com.au/

    I’m taking the pledge for the remainder of 2013. Only hand crafted or thrifted clothes, except socks and undies, until next year?! Gulp!

    Hello! I have just come across your lovely blog and the awesome idea of the pledge :)
    I, Lucy Lovell, am taking the seamless pledge until I drop 2 dress sizes (from a UK 16 to a 12) and after I have fulfilled this goal I will be reassessing and pledging further!
    My location is Lincoln so you can add me to the map please xxx

    Because I am such a tiny person, finding clothes is difficult, so going a year or more without buying clothes new or used, is pretty common for me. Glad other people are joining the bandwagon, but look better than I do while not shopping! :)

    I’m in for life. I don’t intend to buy anything new for myself as I love being able to sew for myself and have everything fit and flatter me. If it doesn’t fit, I can fix it. If my attempts at underwear work out well, I may not even have to buy them :)
