Wardrobe Refashion, Beginning Again

I've been participating in this Wardrobe Refashion challenge kind of haphazardly for more than a year now. But I thought I'd give it six more months to give it another try, and follow-through on completing some of the refashioning projects I have started, planned, dreamed about, or not thought up yet.

  • There are several t-shirts that have been over-dyed, but didn't turn out too well, and will be re-re-re-dyed at least once more.

  • A few shirts will be stamped with some of my hand-carved stamps.

  • One of said t-shirts I'll be using potato starch resist on, to see if I can get a similar look to one of my favorite pieces of fabric I've ever dyed.

  • There are several skirts that I'm modifying, to make them wearable once again.

  • And some shirts that I'm rehabbing or transforming with additions or substractions (oooh mysterious eh?)

I'll admit it. I'm just too stubborn to throw out this pile of stuff. I just know that it is worth spending not tooooo much time on to get something unique and cool out of the whole deal.

I've totally lost track of how long it's been since I started the refashioning challenge but I'm no where near ready to stop yet. I haven't made anything recently, but I'm thrilled at all the clothing I have NOT bought this year. I've been meaning to put up a blog about it. Soon.
