The Mindful Wardrobe Project
build a sustainable closet you love
Meg has a deep commitment to sustainable living and body positivity. She combined these passions with her background in philosophy, art, and education to create The Mindful Wardrobe Project, a transformative course in creative, slow fashion.
Meg loves clothes, sure … but she sees them as more than a public statement. Getting dressed, for her, is a radical act of love (& art) with a profound ripple effect.

“The act of sewing should be, at its root, an act of resistance to fast fashion. They say fast, we say slow. They say more, we say less. They say perfection, we say process. They say competition, we say community.”
Meg McElwee, creator of the Mindful Wardrobe Project

I can’t even accurately express how your Mindful Wardrobe class changed my life.As I read through it, *I* was in the gray phase. No idea who I was. I was the baby feeder, up in the middler of the night-er, the sitting on the floor like a zombie surrounded by laundry-er. For YEARS. Your course is what started me on the journey of finding out who *I* was (not what I’m being marketed) and then making clothes to fit THAT. I’m so glad I was able to purchase it outright and own it forever.Thank you, Meg, for all you’ve done.
The class with Meg totally changed my view of clothing. The exercises she used to walk us through finding our style were eye-opening and left me inspired to continue the journey.Wait til you see me next time — my personal style will be rock-star!
Your course was transformative, absolutely life changing! I’ve made so much more space in my heart and my house for sewing. I’ve got a wardrobe of 15 pieces planned, colors and fabrics in mind, a pile of decent goodwill fabric for making a first draft, taped and cut out a few of my patterns, and I’ve made two pieces so far. This is a lot considering I’m a momma of five! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I have always wanted to feel more creative and expressive in my wardrobe, but hadn't had a way to focus that desire. I don't like shopping or spending much money on clothes, and so "settle" for a close enough size or color when thrifting. My colors and style are similar enough to Meg's that I could get ideas about what might work for me, and see ways that I could get more pieces that really work by making them myself, which of course has the extra benefit of more creative expression! The different topics each week let me approach the issue in a broader way as well, and not just wanting another outfit or two.
