Hello good evening! How good it feels to share here. I send them a hug from a distance.
I love this theme. Two days ago doing a deep cleaning in the closet I took out several pieces of clothing and some I separated them to make them new clothes or to mend them. I warn you that this is only a pair there are still more ...
As I told you before, I like this topic because due to various life circumstances I learned that clothing also has an environmental footprint and this can have a great impact or we can reduce it. I learned not to buy compulsively, to buy second-hand clothes (in my case, most of the time they give it to me)
You can watch the video to see what I did with these two garments.
At first I was not very clear about what I was going to do, so I was guiding myself as I progressed.
I did one pass to the sleeves on the sewing machine, as I did not like how it turned out, I made another one by hand. And finally the hem.
Without going any further, the fashion industry is the second most polluting, being surpassed only by oil. A UN report reported that 20% of global wastewater and 10% of global carbon emissions correspond to textile production. WWF
