Clothes have stories and hold memories

The genesis of Textile Beat is a History Skirt with a story to tell.The skirt was created as a way to use a collection of lace remnants (including white cotton bobbles) leftover from childhood clothing made by Elizabeth Capon for her daughter Jane Jane Milburn in her History SkirtMilburn.

After holding on to these off-cuts for decades after her mother passed away, Jane conceived an idea to put them to good use – by sewing them as frills on two panels of a gored skirt, with the other panels created from a number of unworn garments (linen jacket and shorts, silk dress etc).

This History Skirt, right, demonstrated the potential for using existing unworn clothing to refashion and repurpose ‘new’ clothing for pleasure, reward and sustainability – and so Textile Beat and the 365-day Sew it Again campaign arrived.

Among other slow fashion projects, Jane Milburn writes a column for Fairfax Agricultural Media.
