Wardrobe Refashion

3 07 2008

I just signed up for a 2 month stint for Wardrobe Refashion and I’m pretty excited.  If you’ve ever seen my closet, you know it is crammed full of stuff – and I probably wear a good 85 – 90% of it.  But I was hoping to reuse that last 10% to make something new, instead of spending money on new clothes.

Last night I started cutting up a button-down shirt and I will hopefully be able to make a skirt out of it tonight – I will definitely  be documenting everything here in detail!

The Pledge

I , Marya, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new” manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 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, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings! Signed  Marya.
