About this project
My Recycle Story
Greetings to each of you, and welcome! As a self taught textile artist and fashion designer, my creative chapter in my life has begun. My story, is one of resilience, recycling and creative expression. It has taken three years to develop The Basics of Lines and Linen Collection with jewelry and accessories.
From that date to now, I've created, tested products, fine tuned and now, introduce to you, my work. I'm excited about being able to share my clothing line that celebrates individuality, true recycling and “eco-conscious products and clothing ”.
The Basics of Lines and Linen Collection features the 5-N-1 Halter/Top that is available in several lengths: midriff with tie at front, waist, hip, and or dress. This one piece of clothing can be worn reversible, or when straps are adjusted, the top transforms into a cowl neck, crossover or strapless top and can be worn – and styled – inversely using buttons and the removable pins, the variety is endless.
The collection presents jackets featuring detachable hoods and sleeves, and skirts that can be worn numerous ways as well. The clothing for a world traveller or one who appreciates less is more attitude. The Basics Line compliments a wide range of body types and compliments problem areas. I've selected durable fabrics as Irish linens, and hand-spun cotton from India to provide sturdy, quality clothing.
See examples of how the 5-N-1 Halter/Top can be worn. http://www.merelyme.co/#!seven-ways-to-wear-5n1-haltertop/c1imd

Risks and challenges
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
I work to set the highest quality and accountability standards possible. To that end, My aim is to present hand-crafted items. Because these one-of-a-kind items are made from unconventional materials, the color and sizes may vary.
This campaign may exceed expectations. In the event this occurs, outside contractors will assist to complete rewards for pledges. Since our company focuses on being socially conscious, particular attention is paid to independent contractors who are U.S. based and local.
Before any items are shipped, you will be contacted by email. Expect a welcome confirming your pledge, with details pertaining to your pledge, and communications on the shipping of your pledge.
Questions or concerns are directed to out twitter feed at:@merelyme4u and the e-mail address for customer requests, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another challenge maybe, slow delivery of packages sent through ground transportation of the United States Postal Service.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
