Wardrobe Refashion

I’ve gone and done it. I’ve joined the Wardrobe Refashion Blog (it starts tomorrow) and I’ve committed to 6 months of not purchasing any new clothes and instead, making them myself. This is going to be good for me, since as of late I have become a shopaholic. (Having a clothes-horse of boyfriend does not help.) Here is my pledge:

 “I, Erica, 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, renovoated, recylcled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings! Signed, Erica.”

In addition to that pledge, I am making a personal pledge NOT to buy any additional patterns, yarn, fabric or other craft supplies UNLESS it is absolutely necessary to the completion of a project. I have so many unused patterns, fabrics and notions that I have not used and it is my goal through this to use all of what I currently have on hand. In addition to this, I intend to clean and reorganize my craft space and to sell or trade any fabric and notions that I cannot find a use for. Whew! That’s quite a committment. Wish me luck.

    Best of luck to you!! I am heading into the 2nd month of my 4 month pledge but I didn’t add that additional pledge. That would be really, really, tough for me. 😉
