I pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 4 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, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!
I'm pondering it still. It would be fun, I think. I'm thinking 4 months because I just don't buy that much clothing but in 4 months I'd probably want to do something. I've been following the blog for a while, and they've got some cool ideas. There's cute (if too short) skirts, a fix for a too-big sweater, kids sweater dresses, a fun bag, and one of those cool scarves with an attached hood. (That project used this tutorial.) They also have some things that are.... interesting. Red shoes. Pink dishtowel applique. Oh. My.
