Thanks to Kirsty at loweryourpresserfoot for encouraging me to start blogging in the first place (although I’ve not reached her level of output and am not sure I ever will – in awe!). This is now Getting Serious.
I, Georgeina, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new” manufactured items of clothing, for the period of two 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!
Currently on the table for consideration/getting a wiggle on:
- adapting ‘Red’ dress to fit and flatter me – so called in homage to Madmen’s Joan Holloway. It’s a handmade, figure-hugging silk print that makes me look like a lorry. Re-cut neckline to flatter bosom, shorten sleeves (ditto) and let out side seams to enable respiration. Pics to follow.
- adapt tiny-waisted khaki-bronze polyester lampshade evening skirt into bigger-waisted daywear staple.
- complete apple green knitted weskit adapted from Rowan’s big wool Saffron, to knit on the tube.
- find patterns for Kat‘s amazing, generous donation to the stash of mohair, for more knitting on the tube. Pics to follow.
and finally, today I will work on (on a sprucing-up-how-I-blog tip),
In the spirit of getting a wiggle on, following post to feature two completed projects from 2008, using pictobrowser. Here’s hoping it works!
