Sewing, darning, knitting and mending are skills that used to get passed down through the generations, but not so much these days, which is why The Good Wardrobe is trying to bring back the skill with a new thing called Sew It Forward.

The project launched in November in London with a night of needles, nibbles and slow fashion. It’s all about getting together, teaching your skills, learning new ones and making new friends. You can even download a voucher that promises you will teach the recipient how to sew, knit, crochet, hem, embroider or darn.
The idea of Sew It Forward sprung from The Good Wardrobe, a new site by Zoe Robinson, created to become a community hub of sustainable fashion. If you want to know where to buy organic jeans, how to fix your favourite dress or find your nearest cobbler, The Good Wardrobe is the place to go. It’s still in Beta phrase right now but it’s set to be an absolute gem of a website.
We love anything with a focus on slow fashion, fixing what you’ve got and sustainable style.
