Lately, the internet seems to abound with personal long-term clothing experiments. You’ve probably heard of some of them, like The Uniform Project, or the many people (myself included) who have participated in Wardrobe Refashion.
But MakeShift is particularly amazing. In her own words:
“MakeShift is an art and research project that examines the relationships between ‘making’, ‘clothing’ and ‘living’. The basic premise for the project is that for a period of one year starting on September 1st, 2009, I will only wear things that I have made myself. Initially this may seem like a reasonable task, but it will include all of my clothes, socks, shoes, underwear, coats, jackets, hats, bathing suits, accessories and anything else I might need to protect my body from the elements while trying to lead a fulfilling life.”
Pretty intense and awesome.
