Taking the Seamless Pledge...

Ok, I've been thinking about this for a while and lots of life stuff has been going on recently. 
I'm leaving Uni, getting a job, and we need to be saving for a house. All big scary things and money has got to be saved anywhere possible. Also with the (hopefully continuing) weight loss and stuff I have a lot of clothing that doesn't fit. If I keep going that means wasting a lot of clothing.

After my last big fabric splurge, birthday included I think its a good time to take the Seamless pledge. I am badly addicted to shopping for everything! I need to curb the habit but try to make it fun at the same time. So heres the rules from the Seamless website 


  1. No buying new clothes for the duration of your pledge. By new, I mean any new mass-manufactured clothes.
  2. You can buy second-hand manufactured clothes – so be prepared to get to know your local charity shops awfully well.
  3. Vintage clothing is a-ok!
  4. Anything you’ve made by hand is definitely allowed. Get your sewing machines and your kntting needles out, because handmade is definitely in
So most people tailor the pledge to them and I want to do that so here goes:
I, Stevie Tucker, of Beebee's Vintage Dress will not buy any new clothing until May 14th 2013 when I will re-evaluate the pledge. Except underwear/tights, I will sew and knit my own clothing and thrift where possible. I want to do this for myself and for my life in the future. As an extension of the pledge I will ebay and give to charity any of the clothing I no longer need.

*Deep Breath* I'm glad thats out in the open. I think it will be less of a problem than I anticipate. I am going to have a go at sewing underwear but I don't want to exclusively say I will make it all! 


  1. I was just thinking that I must retake the pledge. I went on a splurge of buying cardigans (my weakness, oddly enough) after and felt really guilty! That, and I saved a heap of money whilst I was doing it...

    Good on you, Stevie! Keep reporting on your progress!

    I might just join you, but I am an awful knitter!!

  3. Oh wow! I've been doing the seamless pledge for 2 years and didn't even know it...minus shoes and undies, of course :P

  4. Just rejoined - maybe we should organise a Seamless pledge meet up and clothes and fabric swap? you could get rid of some of your too big clothes and get some smaller ones in exchange! If you're up for it (post course) we could organise together? Let me know what you think!

  6. Just wanted to wish you a belated good luck for the pledge! Hope it's going well for you so far :)
