The clothes challenge was a self-imposed challenge to buy no new ready made clothes or fabric until the end of September. New clothes & fabric have to come from charity shops or other 2nd hand sources or be made from my stash.
I’m pleased to report that I have kept to the challenge. New stuff includes only trims, thread & some wool so that I can learn to knit socks.
Strangely, I haven’t bought much clothing for refashioning either. I’ve been wearing things I already have & working out new outfits from what’s already in the wardrobe. I’ve even given some things away, so I’ve a bit more space than I had before.
Is this a side effect of not being able to go clothes shopping? Does anyone have any experience of this phenomenon? I’d be very interested to know your thoughts on this.
Meantime I am working on Vogue 1171 from 1950. Details to follow.
