As part of the Threadelicious commitment to investigating zero waste clothes and also aiming to extend sewing skills in our community we are proud to present the launch of our very first Project, The Wrap Skirt Booklet and Kit.

This has been a project a few months in the making and if successful will hopefully be the first of many Kits and Booklets available for the home sewer to consider this concept for themselves.

Investigating garments with zero waste means using no patterns at all rather the skirt is made using a variety of design choices and a Threadelicious Green Table concept.  A myriad of different skirt designs can be made and the whole process is described in the booklet and it works for all body sizes.

The style of skirt although very simple in concept is extreme...

One thing I have come to realise is that everything has a flow to it, it’s all part of life’s energy, and the best thing to do is to go with the flow.  This doesn’t mean that you have to do what everyone else is doing, you can find your own flows in life that’s what being creative is all about.

The Threadelicious ThreadBox is all about flow.  I designed it as a workflow to link through various stages of process to mindfully take you on a journey from reviewing your wardrobe and choices to learning the essential skills to make and design your own garments. 

Looking after a family takes many different flows, one example is organising the food flow in the kitchen, the planning, the buying, the growing, the storing, the creating and making, the reusing, the repurposin...

Things are moving on with work on the Advanced Draping Module which is in 4 parts, looking at fabric volume control with Gathering, Tucks/Pleats, Folding, Twisting, Origami and Zero waste draping.

Parts 1 and 2 are well underway so we may may release them early!

So if you have not got as far as Module 7 yet start planning it all in as you will really need to have worked through the first 6 Units before starting on Draping, as knowledge builds in the workflow.

So much to do and so little time!

UPDATE.....

Fabulous News Module 7 Draping is now all complete and ready for you to use as a member for free.

Topics covered include;


Positioning Approach
Draping Approach
Volume Control
Zero Waste Draping

Nice photo! Grab a coffee let’s have a girly chat, all welcome!

I have wanted to start writing projects to inspire about how to use up your bits of fabric for a while now and have been gathering ideas from some wonderful people who have been working on inspiration within Pinterest for a number of years so get onto the Threadelicious Pinterest Sew-Recycle Board and take a look.

I would like to say that I/we are all forever grateful for all of the talent out there sharing their ideas and creativity for free.

With that said, I had previously decided that any mend, recycle, upcycle or using scraps project I work on will be available for free for anyone who visits the Threadelicious website Public Blog regardless of if they are a member and subscribing or not.

These reuse/recycle...

Fabulous news, Module 7 number 5. Draping Intermediate, Draping Approach Part one and two are now live inside the Threadelicious ThreadBox.

You will review and make the following garments;
