Refashioning Defashionista

I've signed up for the Wardrobe Refashion pledge agian - 6 months. THIS time I hope to stick to the no-buying rule for real! The last piece of new clothing I bought for myself was in September, so I hope to be able to still stick it out.

Here's the pledge (buttons to appear soon):

The Wardrobe Refashion Pledge

I, rani,

Pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing.

I Pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle pre-loved items for myself.

I Pledge that I shall create and craft items of clothing for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium.

I Pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings!

My first creation so far was a sweater-dress I knitted and crocheted for a friend's baby niece. Not for "myself," but that will presumably come soon.
