New Years Resolution Complete! Champion Upcycler Succeeds in Wearing Only Repurposed Clothes for All 365 Days of the Year

Jane Milburn 2We could all take a leaf out of Brisbane born Jane Milburn’s book, as she welcomes the New Year having completed the ultimate upcycling challenge: wearing only repurposed and upcyced clothing for a full 365 days of the year.

Starting on January 1st 2014, Mrs Milburn decided to take part in the Sew It Again, eco clothing project, challenging herself to wear possibly the world’s most sustainable wardrobe!

Jane Milburn 3“I have not been tempted to buy anything new as it is entrenched in my thinking to refashion and reuse, and I love natural fibres and to buy them new is more expensive,”

Dressing in second hand and vintage all the time is one thing- plenty of people do that – but upcycled items aren’t so easy to come by. Jane made all the clothing she wore throughout the year herself, upcycling a new look each day.

So who’s up for the challenge this year?!
