I am so sad to see Wardrobe Refashion stopping and that I won't be a Wardrobe Refashionista anymore. I so enjoyed this! I for one fully understand Nikki's decision to step back and try out new adventures and I think that she has done a wonderful job with Wardrobe Refashion that she can be very proud of.
But, I just started being a refashionista in September and I am not ready to stop yet. Also I don't want to stop sharing refashions and ideas with all the lovely people I have met through Wardrobe Refashion. Let's keep in touch! I will continue to be a refashionista on Grey Duckling and will follow all of you through RSS for now.
Now for the last 'how would you refashion it' on Wardrobe Refashion while there is still time. Last time we looked at jeans and the response was great. I have updated the jeans post with all your ideas and a couple of my own and I will go on to doing some refashions with jeans that I can share with you next week over on Grey Duckling. If you are interested you can check out the Jane Austen Dress in the meantime. It is a refashion of a purple skirt taking aboard some of you great ideas for skirt refashions.
This time around I would like to know 'how would you refashion men's skirts'? Like the last couple of times I will summarise your ideas in a couple of weeks and then I will follow it up with a shirt refashion of my own. I can't wait to hear your ideas.
I was busy last month making some boxers for the men in my life. 4 to be exact. My husband, his 2 younger brothers and my father in law. You can check out the post HERE on my blog about them. They are all made from scrap material from my stash and the front one is made from a pillow case.
It's amazing how little it takes to turn an ordinary item of clothing into something a youngster might pay top dollar for. Take this plaid shirt, which I picked up at an op shop. All I had to do was pick off the pocket which was emblazoned with the words “flip flop fascism” and a picture of a swastika wearing thongs (flip-flops) and it became something my teacher boyfriend was able to wear to work. Except that he never did. Because it turns out he never liked the shirt - with or without its pocket. Which just goes to show that just because a man doesn’t appear to have a signature style, doesn’t mean he doesn’t. More to read on my blog.
