My Review

Many times in my life I’ve been a person who has bought clothes that I didn’t even like, but needed something to wear to an event. From age 23-35 I was pregnant or trying to get rid of the pregnancy weight. With my weight going up and down like a roller coaster, so did my clothing size. Being a SAHM meant that I wasn’t dressing up everyday.

Even though my sizes aren’t stable today, at least I have kept different sizes to have when I need them. I say all this to introduce the concept the author is teaching…..sustainable and suStylability wardrobe.

She teaches about the shameful way some clothes are created and the chemicals involved. The reader will learn about what each type of fabric is made of and what you will be putting on your body. Because humans are putting tons of clothes in landfills, the author teaches us how to make a sustainable wardrobe. It’s better to have fewer classic pieces that we love and that can be worn in different ways.

If shoppers go to thrift stores and buy gently used items we can keep so many things from being thrown away. This book is really great because it’s not just words. There are activity pages of all types. The author knows how to teach by using all kinds of decorative graphs. Artwork includes modern fashion graphics in bold colors.

She offers many crafts and upcycling tips. She even offers the reader the information needed to help them know what “Season” they are. It’s a wonderful book. Although it seems directed to tweens and teens, I learned a great deal from this activity book and plan to implement many of the ideas I’ve read there.
