have really been diggin' this whole wardrobe refashion phenom that's sweeping the globe. (Maybe that's a little presumptuous, to assume it's sweeping the globe, but it sure has my brain in a tizzy.)
No longer do you have to throw old clothes away. You can just turn it into something completely different...that's even more awesome. People across the country are turning really bland pieces of clothing into stuff with ruffles, pleats, flowers, and frills! It's pretty fun. People are seeing really expensive looks from snooty clothing stores and copying them from old rags. I'm absolutely mesmerized by it
This is just one of the many sites out there right now. You will be amazed what you can do with a little unwanted, unused, or old fabric.
So, today, this is what I'm grateful for. But more than that, I'm grateful for all of the super blogs that exist. I've learned more practical skills and life insight from the blogs I've visited this year than I did all 18 or so years of schooling. Let me tell you, I could spend 24 hours every other day just looking at the creative blogs out there. And I don't think it has been even a teeny bit waste of time.
My first attempt at frugal refashion involved this skirt. I've had this stupid skirt for a few years but have hardly ever worn it cuz it has a really slick lining and it rides up as I'm sitting in church. Classy.
So, (or should I say "sew" Ha!), I made it into a cute shirt for Lily...with some final touches of a couple cute black buttons and ruffles down the front.
