Wardrobe Refashion

For a Christmas gift from my mother, I received an essential tool that I have been pining after for a long time - a sewing machine! After starting ecocessories, this need grew even stronger because I see so many opportunities to recycle clothing, just as much as jewelry.

How appropriate then that I came across this incredible blog and movement called Wardrobe Refashion. I made a pledge and this is what it means:

"I 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, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!"
Check out the blog here!

  2. Thanks Rob - I am pretty pumped! The blog is really amazing because everyone who pledges has the opportunity to post and show off their creations.
