I do love Dolly a bit, but no normal hours for me these days, eep.
Today I woke up at 4.30am (before that 1.50am and 4am to check the time) and got to work at 5.10am EEP! I take a long time to get ready in the morning, and I never knew!
Anyways, here's my pledge for the Wardrobe Refashion, as I got my invite to join over the weekend and am so happy! Thanks to Nikki Shell for the blog and the hosting and the invites and all the hard work. And here's to recycling and renovating and getting into fash in a really cool original way. So here's my pledge:
I Veronica Darling pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 6 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 thriftyness brings! Signed Veronica Darling xoxo.
My only new manufactured items of clothing (that I buy) tend to be singlets from Target and Kmart, because they're so cheap and look great with most things. So my goal is to make singlets WITHOUT an overlocker, well I do have an overlocker but it needs a service and is totally spazz with tension. Last time I tried to teach myself how to use it I made the daggiest tshirt no husband of mine would wear.
So at least I know my weakness. singlets and Target and Kmart sales. If you've been doing Wardrobe Refashioning and the pledge, what is your weakness items? Any clues on how to make singlets (skinny straps and tight stretchy)???
