I, Ali, 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, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!
Yes, folks, I’ve taken the Wardrobe Refashion pledge. I feel a bit like I’m cheating as I hardly buy new anyway, but there’s something about pledging not to that not only feels significant but inspiring. I’m still articulating my thoughts on the matter (which I’ll post), but I’m hoping that this will inspire me to finish my first refashion project this weekend: a thrifted, vintage pink skirt refashioned with inspiration from the Colette Beignet pattern. Hooray!
