I, Sonia, 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, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!
I intend to write about this challenge on a weekly basis, sharing whatever comes up for me. I imagine there will be times where I need to pout about not buying some cute new spring thing. The good news is, there’s a “Get Out of Jail Free” card available for emergencies. Other weeks I will share the process of culling my closets, learning to sew, and playing with making my old clothes new again. Fear not–this is still a knitting blog! I just wanted to share this new addition to my life with you all.
During this process I welcome your advice, tips, tricks, sewing wisdom, thrifting strategies, and etsy connections. If you are taking the challenge, let me know!
