I’m getting ready for a two month pledge of not buying any new clothes. Starting May 1, I’m pledging to refashion what I already own. I can’t remember how I found Wardrobe Refashion, but I’m so glad I did. The projects are really inspiring!
I cleaned out my closet a few weeks ago and realized I have plenty of spring and summer clothes, but I’m not in love with a lot of them. Part of the reason is because what I really like I can’t seem to find in stores. I guess that’s the problem with reading all of the cool sewing books and blogs out there. I buy things that are practical. Things that look “fine.”
I want to love my clothes, though. I want them to fit well. Store bought always misses the mark for me with that. I want to take what I have and fix them so they are more than just “fine.”
I don’t think it will be hard to keep the pledge because I don’t really like clothes shopping. Thankfully, patterns aren’t on the “don’t” list. I’ve got a list of tops that I can’t wait to make. I’m just waiting for the next 99 cent Simpllicity sale so I can get started.
Anyone want to join me?
