I made a start last weekend on wardrobe #1. I sorted my clothes into 5 piles...keep, refashion, sell on eBay, sell at car boot sale, and throw away. I tried to be ruthless, but i am a bit of a hoarder so it was hard! I ended up making some cuts though, so it was productive! The clothes for discarding which were in the best condition i am going to try and sell on eBay. I have listed a few and one has been sold already - exciting stuff! My first eBay sale :) I'm not expecting everything to sell, but even a few sales would be great. Anything left over, plus the stuff which is more worn, i will be taking a a car boot sale in a few weeks time.
I ended up with a number of items which i plan to refashion - a good start methinks :) I haven't quite decided what to do with them all yet, so suggestions welcome!
This skirt i used to love, but don't tend to wear anymore. Not sure why. I think i maybe I'll shorten it.
These shorts are knee-length, but, again, i think i would wear them more if they were a little shorter.
This skirt i bought from a vintage fair. I really like the print, but i don't think i would wear it as a skirt. I am thinking about turning it into a top somehow. I like the plain band around the top.
This dress i love, but the way that the fabric is gathered around the front it makes me look a bit pregnant! I'm hoping that i might be able to alter it so that it is more fitted in the bodice.
So what refashions are you planning/have you carried out? If you want to join in with the Make Do and Mend Wardrobe Refashion, pop along and check it out at Adventures of the Creative Miss W!
