I've recently been going through a phase of weekend reconstruction madness. My latest love has been reconstructing old t-shirts into dresses, new t-shirts and a jacket. For the most part this has worked excellently well and I'm enjoying my 'new' wardrobe. Some of these t-shirts were new t-shirts and some were old ones that were too big for me. The up-cycling of goods makes sense to me as a way to stem consumption & waste. This process gives new life to old t-shirts and adds value to cheap over-sized t-shirts that would be otherwise worn and discarded. I like the idea of perpetually re-making things into new items and keeping renewing their value and potential usage.
