Is There a Downside to Upcycling?

If there is a downside to upcycling, I haven’t found it yet. In fact, I can’t think of anything about upcycling that isn’t a good thing: It’s resourceful,  eco-friendly and responsible. I like upcycled clothing because there’s no end to the creative possibilities of taking something mass-produced and ordinary and making something new & unique, totally one-of-a-kind. I love linen and I love denim. And I love vintage textiles. I can’t think of any reason why these two (or three) things should not be joined together.

Here is a sampling of some recent creations that you can see at my etsy shop:
