Since 2017 I’ve enjoyed upcycling – or redesigning – recycled clothes. I started by using some of my own clothes. Then I asked family and friends to give me their old clothes and now I enjoy upcycling to something fun and usefull at the same time. I particularly enjoy if I can change fixed ideas of what to wear. My upcycled clothes are for both men, women, adults and children of all sizes. And I guarantee that you will find something in my collection that noone else has.
And yes, you will find many different names for what I do. Danish, english and even a combination of both languages: upcyclet, visible mending, invisible mending, DIY, remake old clothes, repurpose old t-shirts. I’ve even found several “redesigns” when I use the word Vintage.
In Denmark we love to use english words either in combination with danish words or inventing new words which is a combination. When I choose to use the word redesign it’s because I combine several pieces of cloth, add zippers and blonds, change the length, the width and the hight. In other words I take recyclet clothes and upcycle it to my redesigns – easy, right?
In the beginning of 2020 I was ready to tell everybody about my new hobby. I really looked forward to showing you my redesigns. And maybe also inspirere you to upcycle some of your own clothes that you cannot find in your heart to throw out but at the same time you cannot decide when to use it. And I was also looking forward to welcoming you to my creative workshops and exciting guestspeaker events.
In my workshops you are most welcome to bring your own clothes, that you no longer use, and let’s see if we can come up with redesigns that make you wanna use your clothes again. I’ve also got a lot of recycled clothes that we can try to be creative with, before you start cutting in your own clothes.
And then suddenly Covid-19 hit the whole world and totally new challenges and restrictions turned our our daily lifes upside down. And since both my husband and I are in the risk of getting really ill, should we catch the Covid-19, we decided to isolate ourselves and to let noone in. Only during summer we’ve met with a few family members and a few friends. And without any doubt we have been through 18 very challenging months even though we’ve tryed to keep a positive approach to all the new challenges. Finally we can see an end or rather a new beginning as my husbond got his vaccinations in early spring and by July 3rd I’m on the safe side of my second vaccination. And then we will start inviting family friends home again. And that includes starting up some of my activities in Fie Fit Redesign.
All my redesigns ie upcycling are based on recyclet clothing. The only things I buy new are thread, zippers, blonds and even most of these things are bought in recycle-shops. This way it is primarily my time that is covered in my prices.
Together with each picture on my website, you will find a description of materials and how I recommend that you wash the clothes. This way I’m able to guide you on how to wash and treat the clothes in order to maintain it for as long as possible. Unfortunately I’m not always able to see what kind of materials are used and I will take that into consideration in my washing instructions.
When upcycling clothes I thereby change the sizes from standard European sizes to “inbetween” sizes. That is why I always write measurements in cm. Meaning breast which I measure from beneath each sleeve. Waist. Hips. Length is measured from the top of the should and down. I also write if the clothes is flexible or the opposite. I thrive to include all sizes and I’m confident that you will find designs here, that you cannot find elsewhere. The clothes that you see me wearing in the pictures are a size 42/44. My meassurements are breast: 108 cm. Waist: 97. Hips: 108. My weight is 70 kg. Sadly the only thing I have in common with Marilyn Monroe is the hight; 1.64 🙂 Marilyn Monroe weighed 68,7 kg, her breast-waist width-hips measurements were: 107-92-106 – deep sigh …
The “inbetween” sizes are the reason that my upcycled clothes are not meant to be sold online. It’s far better that you drop by and try the clothes on and see for yourself how it fits. Up until July 3rd when you are able to come visit me and see for yourself, I hope that you will subscribe to my newsletters in which I’ll update you on new redesigns. Please also note, that all subscribers will be able to participate free of charge when I invite to guestspeaker events.
