Wardrobe Refashion 2007

WRbutton.jpg Have you seen the new Wardrobe Refashion 2007 website. It looks great. I just love the new buttons and banner.

I’ve signed up for another 6 months (my same old reasons apply). And so, to keep from looking like a bum (from not buying new clothing) I’m going to try my hardest to keep up with this. Here’s how:

1. Stop at the thrift stores more often to replenish my supply of clothing.
2. Go through my bag of old clothes and get working on unfinished refashion projects.
3. Get my t-shirts on etsy (I’m a big fan of the fitted T).
4. Make things from my two new books, Sew U and Generation-T
5. Really use my stash of Simplicity patterns.

It won’t be so bad.  Why just a couple of months ago I bought  a pair of brown boot leg cut pants, like new, for only $.50.  They fit perfectly and I wear them all the time!  Plus, warm weather is right around the corner.  Perfect for skirts and summery tops which are very easy to make.  I’m looking forward to the continuation of this challenge.
Here is my pledge:

I Regina, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new” manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 6 months. I pledge that i shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoated, recylcled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings!
