Made My Wardrobe

How it all started

On 1st January 2016 Lydia Higginson decided to start making her entire wardrobe from scratch. By the end of that year she had made over 60 garments and given away all the clothes that she had ever bought from shops. Since the 1st January 2017 she has only worn clothes she has made.

As the project built momentum she had lots of women get in touch to say they would love to learn how to make their own clothes, so she started teaching workshops all over the UK. Then she had lots of people get in touch from overseas who said they wanted to sew the designs she taught in her workshops, so she decided to collate all the knowledge she had gained from teaching in person and put it into one envelope which can either be downloaded or posted! Made My Wardrobe sewing patterns have been born.

She hopes this will allow women all over the world to make the clothes they dream of wearing. She has a dream that one day it will be as normal to make your own clothes as it is to make your own dinner. She feels incredibly honoured to have such a phenomenal team of women running the show at Made My Wardrobe.
