It’s over!

January 24, 2011

One year of Fashion on the Ration ended on Saturday!

It’s been an interesting and informative year. If you’re hungry for more FOTR action, go see Ali at The Wardrobe, Reimagined, who’s taken up the torch. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with in her year shopping and sewing on the ration.

Meanwhile, Imma go buy me some SOCKS!

    Oh no!

    I’ve only just discovered your blog and have recently developed a crazy obsession with 40’s fashion… I just been contemplating a “fashion on a ration” idea… I love that mentality of “make do and mend” , buy quality etc etc…

    More please?

    Hi there – was using your Knowledge bit, and had a trip to Classic Textiles on Goldhawk Road – and indeed it is a wonderful place! But just in case you hadn’t been there recently, the council is planning to get rid of that shop (and A1 Fabrics), in fact shops from 30-52 and make them into housing blocks! The shopkeepers have got up a petition, and are asking all their customers to support…. have a look at ‘save 30-52 goldhawk road from demolition’ on Facebook for more details….. thought you might like to know….

    Just stumbled across your blog from …somewhere. I love this project and the amount of thought and research you put into it. Thanks for blogging!

    Have you seen Natalie Purschwitz’s MakeShift project? She has a totally different aesthetic but similar sensibilties RE consumption and disposable belongings and so on.

    Btw I absolutely love the photo you’ve posted here. I plan to try to take my own version of it with my boyfriend at the Liberation festival in Pilsen which will be the next weekend. So, if I take some nice one, I’ll surely post it too.

    Congrats on such a cool challenge! I loved all the info and the videos that you posted.
    On a side note, I was reading about the queen’s marraige and how she had to collect coupons to make her wedding dress after the war. And thanks to your website and research I actually knew what they were talking about!
