Zero Waste Dress and Shirt (free)
Zero Waste (ZW for short) > > is a philosophy that strides for sustainability. The aim is to live a life producing as little waste as possible and not to waste raw materials.
The Zero Waste no. 1 pattern, is sewn from a rectangle and as the pattern name suggests, there are no scraps of fabric left over, after completion. The fabric which is cut-out for the neckline, is converted into pocket bags. The neckline is finished with a stand-up collar. Two stripes of fabric are used for the tunnel and the ties and you can use the last piece of fabric to sew a hairband.
For the Zero Waste no. 1 sewing pattern, we recommend linen or cotton fabrics. You can also use viscose or silk fabric.
