My shop is now officially live! The Small Wardrobe shop is a sustainably minded online store that gives fresh life to high quality recycled items. Items in the shop are made of predominantly of silk and wool, beautiful, resilient and comfortable fibres that will last the distance. Some items appear in their original form, others have been upcycled for a contemporary perspective.
To celebrate, today I am initiating a little giveaway.
The item I am going to gift to one of you is my upcycled cashmere kimono style jacket.
I owned the pashmina from which it is made for over a decade. Last year I decided that I needed to make it more wearable, so I transformed it into a jacket.
I have found that despite my love for it, I still just do not wear it enough to justify owning it. I was going to donate it to charity, but then I realised that some of you might like it instead.
Be warned, it is not a perfect item. It is in essence a homemade jacket. Some of the seems are wonky or asymmetrical, and there are a few pulls. It is, however, completely unique and made with love. It is an item with history, and I would love for someone to appreciate it and give it new life.
The item is best suited for an Australian size 6, or US size 2. I say this because while the upper part is quite generous, the area around the hips is narrow. Alas, these are the limitations of making a jacket from a scarf.

I will collect the usernames of people who have followed this process. On Wednesday 11 April I will draw one of those names out of a hat. I will then DM the user who was drawn. If I make contact and your address is provided to me within 48 hours, you will receive the item within 6 – 12 working days. If I do not receive a response within 48 hours, I will draw another name out of the hat.
The giveaway is open both local and international users.
